Tbilisi City Court demanded MP Nika Melia to post a GEL 30,000 bail, rejecting prosecution motion for pre-trial detention. The MP from the opposition United National Movement (UNM), will also have to surrender his passport pending investigation.
The Parliament of Georgia lifted immunity from MP Melia at yesterday’s plenary session. The decision followed the Prosecutors Office’s request of June 25, charging him for inciting and heading mass violence on the night of 20-21 June on Rustaveli Avenue.
