The chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Jim Risch, supported the statements of Georgian opposition leaders demanding the release of associates convicted of criminal cases, calling them political prisoners.
He posted the statement on Twitter.
I expect Georgia’s political parties to fully implement their March agreement, including the release of political prisoners and progress towards a new electoral system. https://t.co/0nSWlZN9gJ
