Rustavi 2 broadcasted an investigative film created by the Studio Monitor and Radio Liberty about a suspended investigation of the Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia. The film How to subjugate a judge? focused on accusations against prosecutors and judges related to the abuse of power, seizure of real estate, and giving of land to private individuals.
CRRC-Georgia conducted a phone survey to find out if people watched the film and what was their attitude towards the issues raised in it. The survey specifically asked about:
- How often people think prosecutors abuse power and make deals with judges;
- If the Prosecutor’s Office prosecutes current and former high-ranking officials impartially;
- What the goal of the restoration of justice investigations was.
They survey is part of the Promoting Prosecutorial Independence through Monitoring and Engagement (PrIME) project implemented by the Institute for Development of freedom of Information (IDFI) in partnership with CRRC Georgia and Studio Monitor with the financial support of the European Union (EU). The contents of this blogpost are the sole responsibility of CRRC Georgia and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union, IDFI and Studio Monitor.
