  1. 984 sq.m. plot of land and the house on it in the village of Lower Salibauri, Khelvachauri municipality.
  2. 520 sq.m plot of land in the village of Lower Salibauri, Khelvachauri municipality.

According to the law of Georgia on fight against corruption, Levan Mikaberidze, as a judge of the Supreme Court of Georgia, is obliged to disclose full information in his asset declaration.
