Judgment concerning Georgia

Human Rights building

In the case of Melia v. Georgia, the Court held that there had been no violation of the right to liberty and security and no violation of the limitation on use of restrictions on rights.

The case concerned an opposition politician who, at the time of the events, was a member of Parliament and one of the leaders of the United National Movement (UNM). He was fitted with an electronic tag in 2019 when released on bail while awaiting trial for his alleged role in organising and participating in an attempted violent storming of the Parliament building on 20-21 June 2019.
