Lawyers of the third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, have filed a motion to avoid prosecutors Giorgi Mujiri and Archil Tkeshelashvili.
Nika Gvaramia, one of Saakashvili's lawyers, filed a motion after playing a recording of the prosecutor's statement at the trial.
As for prosecutor Giorgi Mujiri's statement, which Gvaramia played at the hearing, the prosecutor said, "On May 26, 2011, when many people were mutilated by police and injured on Rustaveli Avenue, Saakashvili left for New York on the third day, then returned to Europe and carried out cosmetic procedures."
According to Nika Gvaramia, the prosecutor's statement has political content.
"I think these statements are not about the accusation, they have political nature, because the assessment is made in a political context and goes to the case file, this is a political and moral assessment of Mikheil Saakashvili, which the prosecution, specifically Mujiri, does not have the right to do, and therefore I demand his avoidance from the process," Nika Gvaramia said.
