Bail of 100 Thousand GEL for Having Bought Stolen Mobile Phone

Giorgi Jikuri, an accused student was allowed out on a 100 000 GEL bail for having purchased a mobile phone that cost just 300 GEL, as imposed by the Tbilisi City Court.

In this particular case, student Giorgi Jikuri was imposed with that bail in May of 2007. It happened in Tbilisi, at reformed court. Soon it was found out that police had detained some eight more people with the same charge and each of them had to pay 100 000 GEL.
