Georgian opposition demands freeing the prisoners again

2010-04-30 11:57

A meeting with the participation of members of the oppositional parties, non-governmental organizations and other public officials is going to be held in Georgia today. The participants of the meeting will demand releasing political prisoners of the county, GHN reports.


One of the campaign initiators is former Secretary General of movement For Fair Georgia Eka Beselia; she left the party to found her own public organization protecting the illegal prisoners' rights when a criminal case was initiated against her son and brother.

The action initiators underlined that the government is illegally persecuting the citizens on political grounds and the court delivers unfair and ungrounded judgments, which is why there are over 60 political prisoners and several hundreds of illegal prisoners in the country.

"The current toughest situation requires urgent realization of the liberal policy in the field of criminal law, cancellation of the principle of "composedness" of the punishment, announcing public amnesty, giving the prisoners a chance of early parole and pardon", - the disseminated statement of the action initiators goes.

Besides liberating political prisoners, the opposition and the public demand full-scale objective investigation of the facts of violation on the part of the authorities and police committed on November 7, 2007, May 6 and June 15, 2009.
