Posting bail not under discussion - lawyer of Nika Melia

Posting the bail is not under discussion, as Nika Melia has already firmly stated that he does not intend to pay it. Such a statement made the lawyer of UNM Chairman.

“The court trial, in fact, demonstrated the absence of any basis for keeping Nika Melia in custody.

At the Prosecutor’s briefing, we heard that the reason for putting the leader of opposition party behind bars is that he refused to post the bail and not the necessity to perform the tasks under the Criminal Code or the possibility of him fleeing the country.

We do understand the seriousness of the situation in which the government is now, and we know they are trying to save their face”, - added Beka Basilia.
