12.06.12 18:38

One part of the opposition parties and human rights defender organizations believe that the three activists arrested with the charges of vote-buying are political prisoners. Kakha Kukava, who leader opposition movement Free Georgia and lawyer Keti Bekauri held a press conference today, saying Mikheil Meskhi, Mikheil Amashukeli and Gaga Ambroladze were political prisoners. The three were arrested for distributing election leaflets in the streets, which the prosecutor`s office qualified as bribing voters.
The lawyer of the defendants, Keti Bekauri said the human rights defenders discussed the charges which the defendants are facing and concluded that there were no specific arguments and evidence proving that they were bribing voters.
Kakha Kukava told journalists today that persons should be punished for a crime and not for verbal statements.
`These young men have faced very serious problems because of the criticism for indeed a very bad behavior, but, despite of the political course a person chooses or makes statements, they should be detained for a crime and not for verbal statements,` Kakha Kukava said.
