Lifetime Judge of the Court of Appeals, Levan Murusidze, who along with 3 other judges, was sanctioned by the US said that the US Embassy has hidden attempt to hijack the judiciary.
He noted that the goal of the sanctions was to cause problems in the judicial system so that there would be chaos, and the judicial system would be subordinated to the American Embassy.
“The judiciary is being hijacked by accusations of corruption for which there is no evidence. The Ambassador said that justice is not night calls and bribes. I don’t know what to say, if the Ambassador knows that Levan Murusidze makes calls at night, it means that they eavesdrop on me. The main thing is not whether Levan Murusidze will be sanctioned by the United States of America or the European Union, this is my personal problem. I will take care of it. But the main thing is that there is no talk of corruption here, no evidence can be presented that corruption takes place. The US Embassy has been making a hidden attempt for years to seize the judiciary, the rest is not important whether Levan Murusidze will have sanctions or not, it is important that Georgia does not lose its sovereignty, and the US Embassy does not seize the judicial system,” stated Murusidze.
