Purpose of “Vetting” is to exercise political control over the judicial system and encroach on the independence of justice, which is unacceptable for us – Kobakhidze

In the judicial system, the aim of the so-called “vetting” is to exercise political control over the judicial system and to encroach on the independence of the judiciary, which is absolutely unacceptable for the ruling team. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“The purpose of “vetting” is clear... for which similar processes were used before and after 2004. For the same purpose, they want to start this process in our country. Such processes are often used to exercise political control over the judicial system, justice. In order to encroach on the independence of justice, which is absolutely unacceptable for us. Therefore, we cannot support such approaches.

There are specific countries where [Zurab] Adeishvili’s deputy conducts “vetting” today. We can guess how these processes will continue. Such processes are unacceptable for us", - said Irakli Kobakhidze.
