Details of Georgian Dream’s amnesty bill - amnesty in cases related to the events of June 19-21 and annul of administrative fines

As it known, 2 amnesty bills are initiated in the Parliament of Georgia. Representatives of the opposition parties developed one of them, while the Georgian Dream worked out the other.

The draft prepared by the ruling team envisages the exemption of criminal liability and punishment of all persons who committed crimes in connection with the June 19-21, 2019 events. The amnesty does not apply to the crimes committed under Articles 117, 1441-1443 of the Criminal Code of Georgia.

Besides, the bill envisages exemption from administrative fines for an offence committed in connection with the events of June 19-21, 2019. At the same time, a fine imposed as a penalty for committing such administrative offense, which is enforced at the time of enactment of this law, shall not be refunded to the person.

Paata Manjgaladze, a member of Strategy Aghmashenebeli, expressed today confidence that draft law, presented by the opposition, will have public support.

“We have registered our initiative as we hold a different view on this issue. We must hold large-scale public discussions on this draft law. I am sure our draft law will win public support, and we will push the Georgian Dream to readjust their draft law”, - said Paata Manjgaladze.
