The draft law on amnesty will not apply to 5 person whom the representatives of the radical opposition call political-prisoners, said today the leader of the parliamentary majority, Irakli Kobakhidze.


“This bill has been worked out so thoroughly, including at the level of articles, that we do not expect a change in the direction of the articles. As for the question of who the articles are about, the detailed relevant information is published.


About 1,000 inmates will be affected by the bill. As for the five people whom the representatives of the radical opposition call political-prisoners, this bill will not apply to them in any way”, - added Irakli Kobakhidze.


It should be mentioned that the bill provides for the release from criminal liability and appropriate punishment of those who committed certain crimes under the bill before December 11, 2020, although the bill does not provide for some crimes such as murder or even domestic violence.
