2008-11-11 16:52

Amnesty in Georgia would concern altogether 2200 prisoners, David Bakradze, the Speaker of Georgian Parliament, shared.


According to Bakradze, the discussions of the bill proceed; MPs consult with the Ministry of Justice.

Bakradze mentioned that 600 prisoners will leave prisons to the end of the year. Mainly they are persons who were convicted for illegal border crossing or illegal entrepreneurship.

Amnesty will predominantly concern people whose crimes were not heavy, including drug consumers. Their terms will be cut to one half, said the Speaker.

According to Bakradze, Georgian Parliament supports amnesty as it will give people, who committed a crime, a chance for reintegration in society.

Consultations on the bill continue.

According to tentative information, Georgian government intended to amnesty 3000 prisoners to the end of the year. Vano Merabishvili, the Internal Minister, made the first announcement on the amnesty of the largest scale since the times of the Rose Revolution a few days ago. He also stated that it would be the first time the Internal Ministry had nothing against the amnesty.
