On October 16, USAID/PROLoG organized a workshop for the lawyers of the state-funded Legal Aid Service (LAS) on crime provocation and the defenses that may be asserted when a crime is provoked by law-enforcement institutions and state authorities. The training also covered the role of the lawyer in determining whether there was good cause for a covert operation and authorities remained within the bounds of their undercover work, or if they incited someone to commit an offense that he or she would not otherwise have committed. LAS lawyers from Tbilisi, Mtskheta, Rustavi, Gori, Akhaltsikhe and Telavi attended the training.
