Head of the State Inspector's Service Londa Toloraia has elaborated upon the Green School incident resulting in 15-year-old Luka Siradze's tragic death.
"On December 10, in the morning, the Green School Administration discovered that some inscriptions and drawings were made on the school wall both inside and out. To identify a perpetrator, the school administration examined surveillance video cameras. For the same purpose, the administration questioned students and showed them photos of a person caught by the cameras. They also called the police, since the administration considered police involvement in the case compulsory. Before the police arrived at the school, the school administration had communicated with students. Upon the arrival of the police, the school administration handed over surveillance footage without having any legal basis for doing so. Footage of the private messages earlier exchanged between the teenagers also fell into the police officers' hands. The police were officially notified of the committed misdemeanor afterwards, with this resulting in launching the investigation into the case," Toloraia said and added that investigator Mariana Choloiani started looking into the case the same day, and she summoned witnesses, including the late minor and his mother, to the police station.
"The investigator told the juvenile that if he refused to confess to the crime, his brother, who attended the military academy, would have faced problems. Additionally, the investigator reinterrogated the teenager in the presence of other witnesses, including the representatives of the school administration and other minors," said the Head of the State Inspector's Service and added that the investigator arbitrarily broke the law and, by doing so, exerted severe emotional pressure on the minors who were at the department.
According to her, the collected evidence eventually made them decide to imprison the law-breaking investigator.
