When will Melia be released from prison?
The United National Movement (UNM) does not confirm media reports that party chairman Nika Melia may leave prison this week.
As RFE / RL was told in the UN, they have not heard any new information about Nika Melia’s changed position on “EU bail”. Expectations of a possible release of the leader of the largest opposition party arose after he was visited in Rustavi prison on May 1 by Lelo leader, MP Mamuka Khazaradze.
After the meeting with Khazaradze, the chairman of the UNM has not made a new statement from prison and, consequently, his teammates are leading him to his last position. As one of the leaders of the United National Movement, Levan Khabeishvili, told RFE / RL, at this stage he sees no reason to expect Melia to leave the prison on “EU bail” in the coming days.
On May 4, Nika Melia’s lawyers will visit Rustavi Prison and they will inform the UNM representatives about the new information. However, lawyers have previously denied reports that the UN chairman’s chairman should sign any document to agree to a bail offer offered by the European Union.

Armenian lawmakers reject Fashinyan’s candidacy for PM under election deal
The Armenian parliament has rejected the candidacy of incumbent Prime Minister Nikol Fashinyan for the post of new head of government as the first step in an agreement that will form the basis for early elections next month.
Fashinyan resigned on April 25, paving the way for elections to ease the political crisis caused by the defeat in last year’s battle over Nagorno-Karabakh with Azerbaijan.
If he fails to win the support of Fashinian MPs in the second round of voting on May 10 – as expected – the parliament will be dissolved and President Armen Sargsyan will call early elections in June.
Nona Gaprindashvili: “If something was to be won, I have won everything”
“What I I won, Taking Counting, Simply, It is impossible“, – Five-time world champion Nona Gaprindashvili turned 80 today
„My brothers And Neighbors Whatever They were playing, me too I was playing, Therefore Everything at the same time I started: Chess, Football, volley ball, Billiards… My brothers In turns Were happening sometimes Zugdidi Champions In chess, At home too Were arranged Tournaments. I everyone Could not I understood“, – Nona Gaprindashvili remembers with Radio Liberty.
80 years ago chess circles were only in big cities. A girl from Zugdidi lost in talented brothers may never be noticed, if not for one formality – the Samegrelo team was recruited for the tournament and needed a girl. They heard that a girl was playing in the Gaprindashvili family. How and how he played, they did not know, but they had no one else and approached their parents. Coach Vakhtang Karseladze paid attention to Nona’s game in Batumi. They came to their parents again and this time asked them to take Nona to Tbilisi – not for a couple of days, but forever.
When he moved to Tbilisi in 1954, he was thirteen. Within a few years it became so well known that the militia needed the help of the militia to break the cordon.
