The Georgian parliament has approved a bill with its third and the final reading which provides for imprisonment as punishment for providing support to a Georgian citizen to stay illegally in a foreign country.
Supporting a Georgian citizen to receive asylum illegally in a foreign country and taking money for the “service” will also be a criminal offence.
Both of the offences will be punishable by two to four years in prison.
A repeated offence by a group of individuals will be punishable by six years in prison.
