The trial is currently underway in the City Court, where the case of Davit Kutaladze, accused of assault on July 5. Defendant’s lawyer, Sergi Khurtsidze, plans to file a motion to replace the detention with bail.
Dato Kutaladze, accused of assaulting Lekso Lashkarava and Miranda Baghaturia of the First TV crew, was sentenced to imprisonment on July 13 as a measure of restraint.
We would like to remind you that on July 5-6, violent groups raided the Tbilisi Pride office, attacked members of the community, injured dozens of journalists, and Lekso Lashkarava died on July 11. There is a lot of footage that shows this physical violence, but according to Davit Kutaladze’s lawyers: “The prosecutor’s office could not present any evidence that would prove Davit Kutaladze’s guilt in the physical violence.”
The process has not yet been completed in the City Court, where a review of the restraining order will be considered if evidence is sought.
