The prosecutor's office is appealing the decision of the court of appeals to the Supreme Court and demanding an even harsher sentence for Nika Gvaramia


The prosecutor in the case of Nika Gvaramia, says that the prosecutor's office disagrees with the decision of the second instance and will appeal it to the Supreme Court.

Recently the Court of Appeals announced the verdict against Nika Gvaramia. The court left in force the decision of the first instance court, which meant 3 years and 6 months of imprisonment, in the second part of the charge the court shared prosecutors position and charged Gvaramia with causing damage to the company - the court changed 50 000 GEL fine with imprisonment.

As to the third part, which implies receipt of a bribe by a person exercising leadership, representation or other special powers in an organization [Part 3 of Article 221 of the Criminal Code], and legalization of illegal income (money laundering), which was accompanied by a particularly large amount of income, the court divided the decision of the first instance and acquitted Nika Gvaramia.

It is this part that the prosecutor's office disagrees with and says there is "irrefutable evidence" of this charge that will be presented to the Supreme Court.

"The prosecution disagrees with the said decision of the Court of Appeals, we will appeal to the Supreme Court of Georgia within the time limit prescribed by law, in view of the fact that we have received irrefutable evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt and the standard that all three persons committed the act charged, and we have a reasonable expectation that the Supreme Court will at least render a fair, objective and lawful decision and find all three persons mentioned guilty of the charges," stated Prosecutor Zviad Gubeladze.
