Mukhrovani: biased confession2009-09-29 17:49
Giya Gvaladze, ex Delta special force commander, Mukhrovani's top mutineer, the main figurant in this case has made a remedial bargain with the inquest. As a result though he repeatedly changed his evidence General Koba Kobaladze, the chief accused can be sent to prison for 25 years. Gela Nikoleishvili, the general's lawyer, told the GeorgiaTimes correspondent of the intricacies of the investigation.
The majority of the accused in the military mutiny made a remedial bargain with the inquest a fortnight ago. Then Gela Nikoleishvili, defending the accused stated that 34 Mukhrovani militaries had pled guilty. The lawyer thinks it's a behind-the-scenes agreement. "Under the current legislation a remedial agreement was concluded stipulating cooperation with the inquest", - he explained specifying that in practice very often those who commit no crime assume the blame.
Following the confessionary statements of most of the mutineers an unexpected "zigzag" sprang up in the investigation.
Giya Gvaladze, the prosecution's main witness confessed in writing the letter where he called his own accusations against Koba Kobaladze false. Before that Gvaladze denied being the author of the letter. Still earlier the witness told the prosecution that Koba Kobaladze was the mutiny organizer.
Remarkably the accusation against Kobaladze relies solely on the evidence given by Giya Gvaladze during preliminary investigation.
As Civil.ge reports to the question of Gela Nikoleishvili, the lawyer, why earlier he said he hadn't written the letter Gvaladze replied: "So that my family wasn't hurt".
The ex commander of Delta special squad asserts nobody has threatened his family.
To sm it all up at first Gvaladze accused Kobaladze, then he wrote an anonymous letter that the evidence is false and finally he confessed the letter was a lie too.
However this confusion wasn't embarrassing for the inquest. The procedural bargain is settled.
As Giya Gvaladze's lawyer Maia Julaigadze said the agreement signed as the cooperation with the inquest following admission of guilt means two years' imprisonment for her client.
Earlier Giya Gvaladze was charged on art 315 part II of the Criminal Code of Georgia stipulating 7-15 years' imprisonment.
Does that mean Koba Kobaladze's fate is predetermined?
