The cassation board on administrative matters and administrative violation cases of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Abkhazia has issued a Cassation ruling on the basis of which the decision of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Abkhazia from September 20, 2019, has been cancelled, and a new decision was made satisfying the administrative statement of claim made by the former presidential candidate of the Republic of Abkhazia Alkhas Kvitsinia to the Central Election Commission of the Republic of Abkhazia to recognise as illegal and invalid the Decision on the results of the elections of the President of the Republic of Abkhazia.
We think it necessary to declare that this ruling was issued with a violation of the law and can exacerbate the difficult socio-political situation in the state. The issuing of the ruling took place in conditions of the mob attack of the government buildings, the seizure of the Administration of the President and the siege of the building of the Supreme Court. Taking this pressure into account, it cannot be said that the Supreme Court of the Republic of Abkhazia had an opportunity to issue an objective ruling. Only the consideration of the appeal by the Presidium of the Supreme Court under supervision and without any pressure will contribute to the return of the situation in the state to the legal framework.
We inform that we will appeal by way of supervision the ruling issued by the Cassation board of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Abkhazia in the Presidium of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Abkhazia as it was issued with gross violations of the existing legislation.
