Nika Melia again Summoned to Prosecutor's Office

Nika Melia, opposition MP and one of the leaders of the United National Movement political party, has been summoned to the Prosecutor’s Office, the investigative Agency announced today, noting that on September 10, Melia demonstratively violated the ruling of the Tbilisi City Court and despite the investigative body’s ruling, left his residential apartment.

The opposition MP is summoned to the Prosecutor’s Office to be told that said act represents a violation of the condition of using preventive measures and if it is repeated, a tougher preventive measure may be used against him.
