Expanding Mikheil Chinchaladze’s Authority Endangers Random Selection Principle for Court Cases
The Coalition for an Independent and Transparent Judiciary is concerned by the April 30 decision of the High Council of Justice that established narrow specializations for judges at Tbilisi Appeals Court and gave the unilateral power over appointing judges to these specializations to the Chair of the Court, Mikheil Chinchaladze.

This creates significant risks because of the Chairs’ influence on the case allocation process.
