Tragic Hunt for militaries

2009-05-22 22:31

2806.jpegAlarming news from Georgia that has long been expected is reported by news agencies with reference to Rustavi-2 TV. Saakashvili's secret police took advantage of the May 5 events in Mukhrovani with a tank battalion declaring disobedience to the authorities in order to start repressions against militaries objecting to president Saakashvili's policies that according to them had brought the country to a deadlock.

Sooner or later the hunt for the wanted participants of the failed coup was destined to end tragically. This is exactly what has happened.


The agencies report: as a result of the special operation carried out by the law-enforcement officers a suspect in organization of the coup was killed and two other persons wanted in the case are injured.

As stated in the Georgian Interior Ministry Giya Krialashvili was killed in detention in Tianeti district, 30 km to the north of Tbilisi and Koba Otanadze and Levan Amiridze are heavily injured. All the three had been on the wanted list.

Earlier it was reported about 200 thousand lari reward (120 thousand dollars) for the information on Koba Otanadze's location suspected of organizing the mutiny in Mukhrovani tank battalion on May 5.

Who is this Colonel Koba Otanadze whose head is evaluated so generously? Why can the hunt for him be compared with the persecution of Data Tutashkhia, a legendary abrag, the protagonist of a novel by Chabua Amiredjibi, a modern classic writer of the Georgian literature? The actions of gendarmes persecuting the people's avenger are similar to the actions of the presidential secret police ready to resort to any illegality in order to achieve their goals.

On the night of May 12 Saakashvili's police arrested Koba's brother Nugzar Otanadze. Lawyer Onise Mebonia who visited him in the pretrial detention center told the journalists his client had been severely beaten. According to the lawyer the power officials forced Nugzar Otanadze to tell about his brother's location but he did not know that. The lawyer was not given any materials on Nugzar Otanadze's case so he does not know even what his client is charged with. On the night of May 20 the police arrested Koba's second brother Jimsher Otanadze. The Otanadze family's lawyer Onise Mebonia told Rustavi-2 TV that Jimsher's wife and his 19-year-old son had also been detained.

"This is psychological pressure on Koba Otanadze who is wanted now.

This is not a casual coincidence but a direct message to him", - Mebonia thinks. This is what law is for the current Georgian regime favored by the Western democracy.
