Eka Beselia Quits Legal Issues Committee

"Since the Legal Issues Committee has officially become the branch of the ‘Clan’, this was my last meeting in this committee," independent MP Eka Beselia stated on Thursday.

She made the decision to quit the Legal Affairs Committee after Parliament approved 14 Supreme Court judges. Beselia called the Chairman of the Legal Issues Committee Anri Okhanashvili "an ugly servant of the Clan."

Since the Legal Issues Committee has officially become the branch of the Clan, this was my last sitting in this committee,” she said.
