How was it until now? There are persons who don’t want to communicate with our citizens. You will have appointed them, and they close in the offices and not show up. Such kind of persons we should dismiss because they are our face in the regions. How you communicate with citizens, in this way they look at the Ministry of Justice, – said Gia Getsadze.
