Category : Statements;

The Charter thinks that it is important to inform the society, investigate the case quickly, and punish perpetrators of crime to avoid suspicions. Charter asks Georgian Prosecutor’s office to fulfill its responsibility and give Zura Vardiashvili status of a victim (he just has a status of a witness for now), because we have a case of crime, have a victim and possible criminals. Status of victim will give Vardiashvili and his lawyer to get acquainted to the case files, which will make sure that he protects his interests and give society an information whether Liberali editor was attacked because of his professional work or not.

The Charter asks responsible institutions to fulfill required actions in a timely and adequate manner and asks the media to give society full information.
