LAST REMAINING ARMENIAN JUDGES IN GEORGIA DISMISSED. Georgia's
Constitutional Court has dismissed three Armenian judges from a
predominantly Armenian-populated region of southern Georgia on the
grounds that, although their professional qualifications are exemplary,
they failed to pass a Georgian-language examination, Caucasus Press
reported on 28 May. Most of the region's population speaks Armenian and
Russian, but little or no Georgian. LF
