SUBJECT: PROSECUTOR GENERAL ON MAIA TOPURIA 
 
REF: TBILISI 2139 
 
Classified By: Ambassador John F. Tefft, for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). 
 
 1.  (C) On August 29, Ambassador used a previously scheduled 
meeting with Prosecutor General Adeishvili to raise concerns 
about the Maia Topuria case (reftel) and noted the high level 
of interest in the case, including by members of 
Congress. Ambassador said there were allegations from 
Topuria's lawyers of due process violations during the trial. 
 Ambassador said that GoG may have the right under Georgian 
law to close the courtroom, but added that such measures 
could invite suspicion. He requested a copy of the judgment, 
which will explain the reasoning behind the sentencing, when 
it becomes available.  Adeishvili told the Ambassador that a 
copy of the judgment will be available within 15 days, as 
required by law, and that he would ensure post receives a 
copy.  He also stated that he is 95 per cent sure that the 
appeal trial will be open to the public. Post will continue 
to follow up on issues related to the case, and will make 
available to the desk a copy of the judgment when received. 
End Comment.
