People are Divided on Whether the Prosecutor’s Office in Georgia is Independent

News | Good Governance | Publications | Blog Post 30 October 2019

CRRC-Georgia conducted a phone survey to find out people’s attitudes towards the Prosecutors Office of Georgia (PO). The data suggest that people are divided over the PO and that those with experiences of interactions with the PO have more negative attitudes than those that have not had interactions with the PO.

 

Respondents were asked how much they trust or distrust the Prosecutor’s Office. People are divided, with 40% reporting they fully trust or more trust than distrust the Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia. A similar share (39%) reported they do not trust it. One in five (20%) don’t know or refused to answer the question.
