Nika Melia called on his opposition not to compromise morally at the expense of his freedom.
“Now they say Melia must be in prison, in order to trade with my freedom. This is ruled out! I appeal to all my friends, fellow oppositionists, not to insult me and not to compromise moral freedom at the expense of my freedom and not to falsify history. If they want to release me, they can open the iron door of the prison like they did when they put me there”, - said the Chairman of the United National Movement.
