One of European Georgia party leaders summoned for interrogation
Leader of the European Georgia opposition party Giga Bokeria has been summoned for interrogation by the Prosecutor’s Office for alleged abuse of authority while serving as secretary of the National Security Council under the United National Movement leadership.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, they have questions on various agreements made by the National Security Council under Bokeria.
Bokeria has refused to come to the Prosecutor’s Office, demanding the interrogation before a judge.
The Prosecutor’s Office has made a request to the court regarding the type of interrogation Bokeria has demanded, Agenda.ge reported.
Bokeria says that the "revival of the forgotten case" is linked to ongoing protests in Tbilisi, sparked by the "deliberate rejection" of the ruling party proposed election bill on an early transition to a fully proportional voting system starting from 2020 instead of scheduled 2024.
