Threating with rape - 21-year-old accuses police of physical pressure

21-year-old young man accused police officers of threatening with rape. Giorgi Chania, who is accused of robbery, claims that he pleaded guilty in committimg the crime, which he did not commit after the brutal pressure and violence.

According to him, after 6 hours of physical and psychological pressure, he was forced to admit the crime that he did not commit.

Giorgi Chania says that he was forced to sign on an empty sheet of paper and was taken to the pre-detention isolator, and in several hours he was officially charged with robbery.

Together with Giorgi Chania, his friend Khvicha Papava was also charged with grave crime. Relatives of the detainee allege that the confession was obtained from the police by force
