If amnesty should apply to Melia, why it should not apply to lighter articles - Interior Minister

Nika Melia, is charged with the heaviest crime in the June 20 case, and "if amnesty should apply to Melia, why it should not apply to lighter articles?! Such a statement made today the Minister of Internal Affairs.

“A political decision was made with the involvement of European politicians, several rounds of negotiations were held. Therefore, it was decided to adopt a law on amnesty.

I do not think this is unfair. Of course, it also applies to police officers. Not because I am the Interior Minister and I defend the police. I just have a question - if amnesty should apply to Nika Melia, who is charged with the heaviest crime in the June 20 case, why it should not apply to lighter articles?! Would not it be unfair?”, - said Vakhtang Gomelauri.
