As Kaladze told reporters, President Salome Zurabishvili has repeatedly explained why she made the decision to pardon.
“The President was an only person who had the leverage to pardon. It was her decision and she has made relevant explanations regarding it. I completely understand this decision of the President from a political point of view,” Kaladze said.
