One sentenced to imprisonment for murder in Gudauri

One individual, who was charged with attempted premeditated murder in Gudauri, was sentenced to imprisonment. The decision was made by the Mtskheta District Court.
The trial took place at the clinic Geo Hospitals because of the defendant’s health condition.
During the trial the prosecution demanded that the detainee be remanded in custody, while lawyers demanded his release on bail.
One young man was killed and one wounded in a shooting in Gudauri on February 16.
Tariel Kakabadze, the lawyer of the detainee, disagrees with the accusation and says that his client was defending himself during the fight. 
“We cannot disagree with the accusation, given factual circumstances. However, several people committed violent acts against the accused, he was repeatedly beaten. They inflicted various injuries on him. He tried to get away, however, the attackers did not let him go and of course, we all know that a person has the right to defend himself. The right to self-defense is a right defined by law, by the constitution”, - said the lawyer.
