Appeals Court Upholds Bail Ruling for MP Melia

The Court of Appeals upheld on July 2 the ruling of a lower court imposing a GEL 30,000 bail on MP Nika Melia of the opposition United National Movement.

Melia will also have to wear an ankle bracelet, a satellite device that defendants under house arrest are required to wear.

On June 27, Tbilisi City Court rejected prosecution motion for pre-trial detention and demanded Nika Melia to post a GEL 30,000 bail.

The Parliament of Georgia lifted immunity from MP Melia at its plenary session last week.

The decision followed the Prosecutors Office’s request, charging the MP for inciting and heading mass violence on the night of June 20-21 outside the Parliament building on Rustaveli Avenue.
