Drag Edicts in the Prosecution Office


Drag Edicts in the Prosecution Office

July 26, 2004, Tbilisi, Media-News.
Six employees have been dismissed from the prosecutor’s offices of various Tbilisi districts because they have taken drugs. General Prosecutor Valeri Grigalashvili signed the document for their dismissal in the presence of journalists at a special briefing.

According to Grigalashvili, four of them underwent medical exams and their recent drug use was confirmed. Two of them evaded the medical exams, though there does exist proof, claiming that they are active drug addicts.
The employees of the prosecutor underwent exams on July 22-24. Grigalashvili has no doubt in the impartiality of the experts because  they had been warned strictly.

The prosecutor of Tbilisi restrained from naming the dismissed persons because of the request of their family members. ’’We took into account their request. It is problematic that an operative worker of the prosecutor is a drug addict, though the request of family members proves, that such kind of fact is still considered a shame in Georgia,” Grigalashvili remarked.

According to him, the law ensures only an administrative punishment nowadays. But in case of the above-mentioned persons, they will undertake an examination once again and if the expertise comes to the same conclusion, a criminal case will be launched against them.
