Just in: PM Giorgi Gakharia Resigns

Giorgi Gakharia has made a decision to resign as the court sends United National Movement Chairperson Nika Melia to Pretrial Detention.

Yesterday, The Tbilisi City Court satisfied the prosecution’s motion to send opposition United National Movement’s (UNM) Chairperson Nika Melia to pretrial detention after he refused to post bail of GEL 40,000 (USD 12,000). This was the increased amount of bail in the case where the prosecution charged Melia of heading mass violence during the protest during the night of June 20-21, 2019.
