Lelo’s political secretary Salome Samadashvili said at a briefing in the Georgian parliament that a message had been prepared for the president asking her to use her right to pardon Nika Gvaramia.
“We, the opposition parties and members of parliament who signed the Michel agreement, are appealing to the president with a corresponding message, a request to use the right to pardon. We are talking about an agreement that defined depolarization in the country as its main task, and in which the President was directly involved. We want to address in the spirit of this agreement and ask you to exercise your powers. We are also ready to meet in person and present our arguments why we consider this issue very important for our country today,” Samadashvili said.
In addition, Salome Samadashvili spoke about the bill on deoligarchization, which was adopted by the Georgian Parliament in the first reading. As the deputy noted, this bill will not only fail to fulfill the EU requirement regarding deoligarchization, but in the worst case, it can actually become a new instrument of political persecution in the country.
