Vice President of the Republic of Abkhazia Aslan Bartsits gave a speech on behalf of the President at a festive event on the occasion of the Day of the Establishment of the Internal Affairs Bodies of the Republic of Abkhazia.
Dear employees and veterans of the internal affairs bodies!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on the occasion of a professional holiday – the Police Day.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Abkhazia occupies a special role in providing the rule of law and law enforcement in our state. Every day, employees of the internal affairs bodies do their duty to defend the public order and ensure the safety of citizens.
At the foundation of your service, there firmly lie the fundamental principles of an employee of the internal affairs bodies – honesty and dedication to their duty. The level of public trust in the state power as a whole depends on the quality of work of the law enforcement bodies to solve a number of tasks set before them. This is a great responsibility.
In the internal affairs bodies, there honourably work those who defended our Homeland during the Patriotic War of the People of Abkhazia. Many of your comrades sacrificed their lives both during and after the war. Eternal memory to them!
I would like to praise once again the veterans of the internal affairs bodies and express gratitude for what they have done for the republic and especially their role in passing on the experience to the young employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
I would like to express confidence that you will continue using all your knowledge and experience to preserve peace in our state.
I wish you and your relatives strong health, prosperity and successes!
