Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 21 Mar.'16 / 20:25

Prosecutor’s Office said it found no evidence of criminality and closed the investigation into allegation that MP by-election in Sagarejo single-mandate constituency last October was rigged.

The investigation was launched on February 25 after MP Gogi Topadze, one of the leaders of the Industrialists Party, a member of the Georgian Dream ruling coalition, accused Defense Minister Tina Khidasheli of the Republican Party, also a member of GD coalition, of manipulating Sagarejo MP by-election. Investigation was opened under the article 332 of criminal code, involving abuse of power.

“No crime committed by public office holders has been confirmed as a result of the investigation; therefore, the Prosecutor’s Office has terminated probe into the case,” Prosecutor’s Office said on March 21.
