Human Rights Center assesses the Activities of the New Department of the Prosecutor’s Office


The HRC paper reviews the cases of former political prisoners and other victims the cases of which are subject to review by HRC, on which the new Department of the Prosecutor's Office has been working for years: The so called case of Kintsvisi, the case of Vakhtang Maisaia, the case of Davit Adeishvili, etc.

HRC studied the activities of the Department of the General Prosecutor's Office for Investigations of the Offenses committed during Legal Proceedings General already in 2018 with the support of the Open Society Foundation. The vast majority of the problems identified by HRC during the 2018 research are still relevant today, and the recommendations are unfulfilled.

The rate of launching new investigations is still low and does not meet the needs for the restoration of justice for the persons with violated rights, the reasons for this remain the non-availability of guidelines and specific criteria. This actually hinders the process of restoring in rights for alleged victims.

Despite the fact that the legal regulations do not restrict the activities of the Department to a specific period of time, 100% of the cases are still limited to investigating the offenses committed during the legal proceedings  before 2012 Parliamentary Elections.

An analysis of the available statistical information clearly shows the declining trend in adopting the decisions by the new Department on substantial violations of human rights in the course of legal proceedings. Further, against the background of the fact that the persons abused in terms of human rights have been waiting for the restoration of justice since the establishment of the Department, the non-transparency of the activities of the Department and the ambiguity of the criteria  raises more questions in the public about the effectiveness of the Department.
