The representatives of the Chief Prosecutor’s Office were informed about the new project of the Human Rights Center – “Researching the New Department of the Chief Prosecutor’s Office,” which aims to monitor the work of the department investigating the offenses committed in the course of legal proceedings in the Chief Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia and promote better work of the department.

Several urgent issues were discussed during the meeting: directions of the new department’s activities, rule of their work, number of department’s staff members, rules and criteria to select the personnel, criteria and selection rules for accepting the case under investigation, categories and number of the crimes, which are investigated by the new department, and more.

Throughout the project, the organization will observe court hearings of the revised judgments.  The organization will actively cooperate with the Public Defender and NGO members of the Coalition for Independent and Transparent Judiciary.
