The Tbilisi-based Abkhaz parliament-in-exile, comprising the Georgian deputies elected to the Abkhaz parliament in late 1991, passed a resolution on 12 February demanding that the UN launch a peace-enforcement operation in Abkhazia to pave the way for the return to their homes of Georgian displaced persons who fled Abkhazia during the 1992-93 war, Caucasus Press reported. The parliament-in-exile also decided on 12 February to send a delegation to The Hague to present to the International War Crimes Tribunal some 30 volumes of materials on war crimes allegedly committed by the Abkhaz against the breakaway republic's Georgian population in 1992-93, Caucasus Press reported. The delegation will be headed by the exiled legislature's deputy chairman, Givi Gvazava. LF
