Ombudsman has prepared a constitutional lawsuit related to banning the Conservative Movement founded by Alt-info

A constitutional lawsuit was prepared by the office of Ombudsman, which refers to the banning of the party Conservative Movement founded on the basis of Alt-Info. Such a statement made today the Public Defender of Georgia, while talking about July 5 case.

“53 people are recognized as victims of the July 5 group violence, and criminal prosecution has been initiated against 27 people. The Office of the Public Defender is currently studying several convictions of those involved in the violence.

We would like to remind the public that one of the prerequisites for Georgia’s candidacy for EU membership by the European Commission is the protection of vulnerable groups and more effective justice for perpetrators and organizers of violence.

The organizing group of July 5 illegal actions and large-scale violence created a political party of citizens in 2021. Many of their previous and subsequent statements contain signs of overthrowing the constitutional order, stir up various types of strife, encourage violence or contain signs of violence themselves, and are propaganda for war. It is for this reason that we have prepared a constitutional lawsuit regarding the banning of the mentioned political party.

Since the Public Defender does not have the authority to apply to the Constitutional Court on this basis, we have submitted the draft of the lawsuit to several subjects authorized to apply to the Constitutional Court and we hope that they will initiate legal proceedings in the court”, - said Nino Lomjaria.
