The Psychological Expertise – Prisoner’s Way to Freedom

Insane Policemen in Public Security Service

On June 12, the NGO “42nd Article of the Constitution” held a press-conference dedicated to the practice observed in Georgia, when criminals avoid  legal responsibility through using  psychological expertise. 
It was mentioned at the press-conference that this practice has been encouraged by legislation.
According to the attorney Tamar Gabisonia, the classic example of it is the recognition of Peter Rukhadze as insane. Peter Rukhadze, having been observing territory as a member of an operative team of police, mentioned a strange car and considered the people inside to be criminals.
He violated the law on police and shot the people in the car using a hunting gun. The victims of the attack included the driver and the policeman.
The psychological-expertise of the hospital said that Peter Rukhadze was insane when committing the crime. “The reason  indicated in the conclusion of the expertise is absurd and not logical, as Rukhadze, being a very responsible police officer, was periodically undergoing medical examination.,” urges Maka Gioshvili, the attorney.
Advocate Lia Mukhashavria considers it important to established a mechanism for ensuring alternative expert testimony.
