New Chair of Prosecutorial Council Elected

On 16 January, Prosecutor Nana Khunjua was elected the new chair of the Prosecutorial Council. 12 out of 15 members voted for Khunjua, according to figures from the Prosecutor’s Office, a clear win against her opponent, defense lawyer Irma Chkadua.

She has worked for the Prosecutor’s Office for more than 12 years and will now serve the Prosecutorial Council for two years.

The Prosecutorial Council was established in 2015. Until last month it was subordinated to the Justice Ministry. It is now an independent body that is directly accountable to Parliament.
