Georgian PM announces resignation

Tbilisi, Feb 19 (TIWN) Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia announced his resignation on Thursday.

He believed it was wrong to arrest Melia when there is a danger of political escalation in the country.  "My absolutely firm position is that the enforcement of justice against one person, if it endangers the health of our citizens, if it creates a chance for political escalation, is unacceptable," Gakharia told a briefing.  Tbilisi City Court ruled Wednesday that Melia be remanded in custody for failure to post bail, per the request of the country's Prosecutor's Office.  Georgian Parliament on Tuesday suspended the MP status of Melia, allowing the prosecution to demand his arrest claiming the latter has not posted bail for his release in a case dating back to the June 2019 protests.
