South Ossetia got hold of a Georgian spy2008-11-13 17:14
The officers of the South Ossetian KGB found out lists of agents of Georgian special services in the villages of former Georgian enclave to the north of Tskhinval. For the purpose of investigation the first arrest was made: major Timur Guchmazov, the operations desk officer of the border service of South Ossetian KGB was accused of high treason.
The materials found in the building of the Ministry of State Security of Georgia in Tamarasheni village are the basis of the charge against Guchmazov. South Ossetian security officers reported that the data base containing the names of agents recruited at different times and audiotapes with conversations with them had been found there. As a result a few suspects out of local residents turned out. Major Guchmazov was arrested as early as on September 29. The republican KGB made this information public on November 11.
At the interrogation the major practically confessed to collaborating with the Georgian special services. His testimony shows that as early as in autumn 2005 he met a Sasha at the market who offered him to do joint business. Sasha was responsible for bringing new DVD films and instruments from Tbilisi while Guchmazov was to organize their sale in Tskhinval. A business of this kind was customary in South Ossetia before the latest war: Georgians did not venture to sell there directly that is why they tried to act through the intermediary of Ossetians.
According to the detained during the meetings with Sasha the latter would between this and then ask about "the atmosphere in town, the condition of roads, about how often the cars going from Georgia are stopped and searched". Then the business partner that the border guard had acquired got interested where he worked, how much he earned and who his bosses were.
"At our first meetings I did not realize he was a security officer - the major asserts. - When Sasha asked questions about certain personalities he would do it at odd moments."
Nevertheless all these conversations seemed suspicious to the major and he began to avoid communication with the doubtful business partner. Then the latter presented the records of the conversations to Guchmazov stating that he would pass them over to the major's command unless he agrees to further contacts.
