Despite violence-related legislative improvements in recent years, approach to sexual violence in Georgia remains almost unchanged. Tragic incidents over the last few months have revealed shortcomings in legislation relating to sex crime and its enforcement.
The television miniseries Unbelievable is based on a true story of a serial rape case investigation. It vividly shows the challenges sexual offence victims may face in the absence of the proper treatment of the case by the judiciary and the society.
