13 - year problem from Nephew

Prisoner Shorena Gegelishvili, who is ill with tuberculosis, was to be released on August 8. But several days ago she was sentenced to two-month pre-trial detention and nobody interrogated her regarding the fact. Judge and her assistant are on holiday and Nestan Londaridze, lawyer for Human Rights Center (HRIDC), who protects Gegelishvili’s interests, cannot study the case properly. The prisoner was on a hunger strike for several days in protest but because of health problems she was obliged to stop the protest today.

“Childless” Prisoner
“When verdict was passed on Sofio Kobakhidze, both the judge and the prosecutor knew that she had one-month-old baby. Sofio’s lawyer, Ana Gagua, introduced the court with birth-certificate of the child. The judge and the prosecutor looked at each other in silence, but finally they did not react on the fact. Sofio’s little baby is not mentioned in case materials at all,” said Davit Managadze, lawyer for the Human Rights Center (HRIDC).
“Let’s Encourage Murderers”
Goga Khaindrava: “Now everything depends on the dignity of society; how will people put up with similar dishonesty. I predict that Saakashvili’s government will finish its activities shamefully. It is terror and society cannot put up with terror.”
