The Presumption of Innocence is Violated in the Case of Mamaladze

According to a statement released by the Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia, on February 10, 2017, as a result of investigative actions conducted by employees of the Prosecutor’s Office, Archpriest Giorgi Mamaladze was detained and charged with preparation of murder, a crime punishable under Articles 18 and 108 of the Criminal Code of Georgia.

Despite the gravity of the charges and the public’s particularly sensitive attitude to this issue, the GYLA believes that the statements that representatives of the Prosecutor’s Office and a number of political officials have made in relation to the accused are unjustifiable.
