The Tbilisi City Court has ruled to remand thirteen defendants in custody accused of being mafia members and supporting the underworld.
The majority of the defendants attended the court hearing remotely.
The defendants' lawyer defined the court judgment as ungrounded and said that he intends to file a lawsuit against it.
The MIA detained 13 people over their alleged connection to the mafia on 10 June. The mafia boss was charged in absentia.
