Tbilisi. According to a statement, made by the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association, at the Supreme Court, judges have been appointed as a result of a deal between the clan and the Government.
“Regardless questions related to competence and conscientiousness of candidates, the Legal Affairs Committee recommended to hire some of the participants of the competition. On its part, the plenary session acknowledged recommendations completely and appointed 6 judges to the position. It should also be noted that among candidates, appointed to the position, were individuals loyal to the influential group of judges – the clan and their leaders. The decision was not based on a broad consensus among parties, which fact is going to have a negative impact on confidence in court in the future”, - is noted in the statement.
