Lawyers Started Strike in Front of Appeal and City Courts

The Georigan Bar Association went on strike today.  Attorney Gela Nikolaishvili reported to the Medianews that the lawyers have since come together in a show of support in front of Appeal and City courts. He said that none of scheduled  trials will be held either today or tomorrow. The strike is scheduled to last for three days.

Members of the Bar Association support Malkhaz Jangirashvili, a hunger striker in front of the Public Defender’s Office. The lawyer demands a independent court system and right to review the verdict to higher courts among their demands.

With the initiative of the lawyers the members of the Bar Association will establish mobile groups who will monitor court hearings. Nikolaishvili stated that the lawyers will remain in front of the courts until 6:00 PM. He added that the Prosecutor’s Office and Court has not reacted to their protest.
