On July 17, 2015, the Public Defender addressed the LTD “Artpalace” with a recommendation to develop the internal documents (regulations / rules / principles), which will introduce the principles of arranging proper conditions to enable persons with disabilities to participate in a variety of events.
On February 12, 2015, the anniversary event of Paata Burchuladze was held at the Sports Palace. Among other attendants the tickets were purchased by the persons with disabilities; however, due to the inadequate adaptation of the facilities, they were no able to attend the above-mentioned event.

As a result of the examination of the case, the Public Defender determined that the LTD “Artpalace” was in charge of a direct discrimination against M.D. on the grounds of disability.
