Prosecutor of Adjara Autonomous Republic Meets Only Selected People
Lela Abesadze applied to the Batumi office of the Human Rights Center. She was registered to meet Giorgi Ugulava, prosecutor of Adjara Autonomous Republic two times but the prosecutor did not meet him at all.
“I was the sixth in the queue but when my turn came the security officer told me the prosecutor was not going to meet me. They did not explain anything to me. However, the prosecutor met other citizens.”
Lela Abesadze applied to the prosecutor’s office in June of 2009. She requested the prosecutor to investigate the fact of her intimidation and illegal restriction of her freedom. The incident happened on July 10, 2007 in her house. Abesadze lived next to the Levan Varshalomidze, head of Adjara government in Baratashvili Street N 20 in Batumi. “I could not enter my house properly because Varshalomidze lived in the same building. Then they blamed me for causing disorder in the house and the police detained me. Then I was taken to the mental hospital and spent 5 days in the preliminary detention setting. Now, I am blamed for minor offence,” said Abesadze.
The refusal of the Batumi district prosecutor Zaza Metonidze on Abesadze’s complaint was appealed at the Prosecutor’s Office of Adjara Autonomous Republic but prosecutor Davit Charbadze sent the case back to Batumi prosecutor for further discussion. Lela Abesadze appealed to the chief prosecutor of Georgia too. However, the same prosecutors received the case back. “I do not think I will find justice but I will not stop. I will appeal to the Strasbourg Court.”
