2009-01-23Court VS Honor and Dignity of Soldier
On November 6, 2008 Gori district court signed plea-bargain with two soldiers who were accused for deserting the army during war operations in August 2008. According to the bargain, initial charge of the soldiers-deserting-was changed into disobedience. The attorneys of the accused people requested plea-bargain. They considered it was the shortest way to gain freedom for detainees in the expectation of the Presidential mercy. On December 17, 2008, on St. Barbare’s Day, soldiers were really pardoned and released. Everybody should have been pleased with the result but pardoned soldiers, Zurab Khorbaladze and Giorgi Meskhi are sure that impartial court should have estimated their innocence. However, the lawyers could not give them guarantee for similar decision and the accused people had to accept status of a guilty and get freedom at the expense of soldier’s honor and dignity. Whilst, they expected the court to protect their dignity.
