Lawyer appeals Ramishvili's detention

From Civil Georgia:

Davit Korkotashvili, defense lawyer of Shalva Ramishvili who is a co-founder of the Tbilisi-based private 202 television station and who is currently facing extortion charges, appealed the Tbilisi District Court on August 31 requesting to suspend the lower court’s ruling, which sentenced Ramishvili and his partner Davit Kokhreidze, director of the 202 TV, to three-month pre-trial custody on August 29.

Meanwhile, Ramishvili and Kokhreidze, who deny extortion accusations and label them a provocation, continue their hunger strike claiming that their detention is politically-motivated.
