Ombudsman demands Shalva Ramishvili’s release

The Georgian Ombudsman has demanded that Justice Minister Nika Gvaramia release Shalva Ramishvili, Sakartvelos Respublika reports.

According to the Ombudsman Ramishvili has already been in jail for a long time and has no stain on his prison record. For this reason, the Ombudsman thinks that Ramishvili should be pardoned.

In his appeal to the Minister the Ombudsman highlighted Ramishvili’s contribution to Georgian journalism. He stated that everyone is equal under the law regardless of his or her position or contribution but added that Ramishvili’s freedom would be more beneficial to the country than his incarceration.
