TBILISI, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Georgia’s chief prosecution office has brought in absentia office abuse charges against former Minister of Justice Zurab ADeishvili, who is currently staying outside Georgia.
“In line with a resolution of December 28, 2012, Zurab Adeishvili is accused of office abuse to win advantages for himself and other persons, which violated the rights of individuals and legal entities and did harm to the lawful interests of society and the state and was done though the use of violence and insults,” the prosecution office said in a release on Saturday.
According to prosecutors, the former minister is liable for “humiliating and cruel treatment of prisoners” and for “faking evidence in a grave crime and instigating crimes.”
Adeishvili was Georgia’s Minister of Justice from December 2003 to February 2004. Later, for the period of four months, he was Minister of State Security. From late 2004 to 2007, he was Prosecutor General, and head of the presidential administration in 2008. From November 2008 to October 2012, Adeishvili again was Georgia’s Minister of Justice. Following the October 1 parliamentary election, he fled the country, and, according to local media, is staying in Austria. In the recent years, he has been severely criticized by local politician and public figures as “a key architect of unlawful acts in the country.”
