President Margvelashvili Grants Clemency to 143 Inmates

Giorgi Margvelashvili, President of Georgia has signed a decree of pardon, according to which in total 143 inmates are granted clemency.
The Pardon Commission has reviewed 1347 cases. Among the pardoned, 84 inmates will be released from penitentiary institutions today; while 59 inmates have received various forms of commutations.
“As you are aware, President Margvelashvili has declared a moratorium on reviewing the cases of inmates who have committed violent crimes; therefore, the Commission has deferred 216 cases. These are inmates who have been convicted of violent crimes, robbery and crimes against life and health. The Commission will definitely review these cases in the nearest future when the temporary moratorium is over,” Zviad Koridze, Head of the Pardon Commission said.
