Natia Gogolashvili

Convicted Tamar Talikadze has been on hunger strike in prison # 5 since February 28. She said she has declared permanent hunger-strike. The female prisoner is requesting meeting with the Public Defender Nino Lomjaria, MP Elene Khoshtaria and President’s Parliamentary Secretary Ana Natsvlishvili. The letter of the prison administration states that the convicted person does not have any complaints against the administration.

Tamar Talikadze, who has been in prison since 2007 and Human Rights Center defends her interests. She was convicted under Article 260 Part 3- “a” and Article 262 Part 4 – “a” of the Criminal Code of Georgia and was sentenced to 30-year-imprisonment. 

As a result of December 28, 2012 Amnesty Law of Georgia, she was freed from 17-year-imprisonment under Article 260 and the charge under the Article 262 was reduced at 1/3. Finally, Tamar Talikadze has to serve 13 years and 4 months in prison.

Having studied the criminal case of Tamar Talikadze, Human Rights Center concluded that investigation was conducted through procedural violations, evidences were not adequately, comprehensively and impartially examined.

The convicted woman several times started hunger-strike during the past years. She has been requesting revision of her judgment as she declares herself innocent. She believes the verdict was unverified and illegal.
