Their punishment was shifted to non-prison one and they passed under control of Probation service.
Yesterday ombudsman Sozar Subari and representatives of pro-opposition parties protested against their early release.
Girgvliani' s murder stirred a wide resonance in Georgia, as, according to the victim's relatives and opposition representatives, this crime involved high-ranking officials of MIA and the wife of Vano Merabishvili, the Interior Minister.
"It's outrageous. The release of murderer policemen means other policemen can kill innocent people and get away with it", Subari claimed.
