Ex-wife of MP Defended by NGOs


Ex-wife of MP Defended by NGOs

06.10.05, “Media News” – The ex-wife of the Member of Parliament George Chakvadze has been the victim of family violence, say the representatives of the NGOs working on women’s and violence issues.

Chumburidze was arrested on the 1st of October. She is accused of attempted murder of her husband. She is to be kept in preliminary custody for three months. Though, this is only one side of the story.

As came forward at the press conference, Eter Chumburidze’s husband was beating her systematically; she was chased by him and did not get the possibility to see her children.

“She is punished because she does not have immunity, does not have any rights and does not have her own property,”- says the head of the organization “The Network of Caucasian Women” Nino Tsikhistavi.

According to the non-governmental organizations, 94% of Georgian women fall victim to family violence, which makes it a major societal problem. Nonetheless, unfortunately, people and the media do not pay much attention to it. Chumburidze’s case only raised great interest because she was the wife of an MP.

Representatives of non-governmental organizations intend to monitor the investigation process. They will also summon a wide range of people with detailed information about Chumburidze’s case, which will help them to learn more about the problem of family violence.
