The party led by president Mikheil Saakashvili said the legislative is taking a risk by approving the legal measure allowing mass pardons.
“The state is taking hazards with its own citizens behind the veil of fake humanism. Spies and criminals jailed for spying for Russia will leave prisons as a result … so they state now turns out to be apologizing to those people,” said Georgy Gabashvili, a lawmaker of the former ruling party
The United National Movement has been a minority party since the October parliamentary elections in the country.Tert.am had earlier said that the Georgian Armenian activist Vahagn Chakhalyan is also expected to leave prison thanks to the measure.
