The leader of “Multinational Georgia” movement told the First Armenian News and Analyses that Armenian political prisoner Vahagn Chakhalyan can be set free according to the law accepted on December 21 but it is not clear whether he will be set free or not.
But a number of political parties in Georgia are against his liberation although it is not excluded that he could be liberated on January 17.
The reason for such opinion is the rumors that Chakhalyan organized an attack on religious women. This is non-official information however. Another reason based on non-official information is that he organized an attack on one of the local universities.
Chakhalyan himself rejects the news and in order to be liberated a political will is needed.
