According to the Criminal Code of Georgia, criminal leaders cannot be at large, staying on the territory of Georgia, so all the six "thieves in law" must leave the country within 24 hours after release.
"They have long served their sentences and the amnesty also applied to them. They had a choice: either to leave Georgia, or their sentences would have been extended under the applicable law; they have decided to leave the country", said Giorgadze.
Human rights activist and one of the authors of the list of the amnestied prisoners Nana Kakabadze advocates the abolition of Article 223 of the Criminal Code, since in her opinion, "it is unfair and undemocratic to arrest a person for his world outlook", the RIA Novosti reports.
