Verdict into Akhalaia's One of the Trials Expected on Monday
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 25 Oct.'13 / 16:02

Judge, who presided over the trial into ex-defense and interior minister Bacho Akhalaia’s one of the criminal cases, will announce verdict on October 28, according to the Tbilisi City Court and Akhalaia’s lawyers.

This trial, which was adjourned pending verdict on October 17, was over charges into alleged abuse of power, involving allegations that he beat up several inmates when he served as prison system chief in March, 2006, which led to a riot in the Tbilisi prison No.5 that claimed the life of seven inmates.

Akhalaia has already gone through two other separate trials.

In one of them, on August 1 he was found not guilty of charges involving exceeding official powers, illegal confinement and torture into three separate cases.

Second trial was ongoing in connection to allegations involving mistreatment of seven special task force servicemen in August, 2012 when Akhalaia served as interior minister. Like in other charges, here too Akhalaia denies allegations saying that prosecutors tried to portray extremely challenging training course as inhuman treatment of servicemen. On August 13 this trial was adjourned pending verdict, which judge has yet to deliver.
