“Export” of thieves in law from Georgia goes on

2009-09-02 00:21

3822.jpegThe Georgian criminal elements continue to appear in the criminal summaries. Recently, the news about the detention of this or that "authority" used to come from Russia, while last week, the Georgian criminals were arrested in Spain. Today, another thief in law was deported to his native country from Ukraine which is allied to Mikhail Saakashvili. Well, where else are the Georgian criminal elements going to be spotted?


The information on seizing Kosta Bobokhidze nicknamed Givi came from the Ukrainian town of Suma. According to the First Deputy Chief of the local militia administration Vadim Leontiev, Bobokhidze and his three assistants arrived in Ukraine about two months ago. Within this period, they have committed pocket-picking and robbed a young woman, having taken her gold, as Prime Time reports. Moreover, during the search, wallets, handbags, mobile phones and a digital camera with the shots of Kiev were also found on them. The law-enforcement authorities leave open the possibility that Givi's gang operated in the capital of Ukraine as well.

The county administrative court of the Sumskaya region has announced its decision to deport the thief in law and his crime partner to their homeland. Two other citizens of Georgia that belonged to Bobokhidze's gang are now kept under arrest; a criminal case is initiated against them.

According to the First Deputy Chief of the local militia administration Vadim Leontiev, the thief in law that has been known of since the USSR times and had served a 42-year sentence arrived in Ukraine "to coordinate the Georgian criminal activities specializing on pocket-picking and theft from cars", as UNIAN reports.

Meanwhile, the media already presented information that Givi might be released on getting home. The point is that since recently, there has appeared another article in the Georgian Criminal Code, according to which, the main proof of a suspect's guilt is the very fact of his/her admission of a "status of a thief", as Prime Time reports. Thus, nothing prevents Bobokhidze from denying his past "merits" and avoiding the jail. However, this is not customary among thieves.

During the last year, two Georgian "authorities" have been deported from Ukraine. In December, Zaza Sharikadze known in the criminal society as Suliko was sent home. He was detained during a joint operation of the Russian and Ukrainian law-enforcement authorities. It is a fact that Sharikadze had come to Ukraine in order to re-distribute the areas of criminal influence, while in Moscow he held control over the Georgian bag snatchers.
