/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Georgian Public Defender Sozar Subari made a
statement on the Georgian government’s deliberate delay to register
French lawyer Patrick Arapyan as a defender for Javakhk political
activist, Leader of United Javakhk Political Movement Vahagn
He slammed the delay as a violation of constitution-guaranteed
protection right, Bagin.info informs.
At the night of July 20, 2008 Georgian special squad soldiers and
the local police burst into the house of United Javakhk Leader Vahagn
Chakhalyan, arrested him and his family members.
Only 3 hearings have been held since Chakhalyan’s arrest, where
the observers, including those from Georgian Ombudsman’s office,
registered gross violations.
On Dec. 3 new charges were laid against Chakhalyan and the trial
postponed for an indefinite period.
