Abkhazia and Russia to block the great heroin way2010-12-09 21:15
On December 4, Russian border guards stopped a foreign-made car trying to get from Georgia to Abkhazia, carrying drugs. A criminal case was opened by Abkhaz law-enforcement authorities. There were found 64 grams of drugs of the plant origin: that's not the largest investigation with the most sensational results; still, it is carried out. Drug dealers have not yet got used to the fact that one can be caught barehanded at this frontier. It is open for any criminal actions but drug policemen know perfectly well about one of the main drug traffic routes running through Abkhazia.
running through Abkhazia.
On December 6, a cooperation protocol was signed between Russian and Abkhaz drug policemen holding control over drug distribution. That's the second detailed document signed between Russian Federal Drug Control Service and Abkhaz MIA over the last one year and a half. The active cooperation of the Abkhaz and Russian law-enforcement agencies will block at least one of the main drug roads in the Caucasus running through the Abkhaz territory. The task seems to be rather challenging, though.
Deputy Minister of Interior of Abkhazia Zakan Jugelia was killed in the center of Sukhum in January 2009. At the moment of murder, he was drinking coffee at an open veranda of the Kiki café, the favourite spot of the local drug addicts. The criminal came up to the victim very closely and, letting off his shotgun, went calmly towards his car at the neighbouring corner. The prosecutor's office suggested three versions of the crime including the foreign special services' "trace". However, it was clear that Jugelia could be killed only for his professional activity: he supervised the drug traffic control service at MIA. Naturally, the crime was not cleared.
Over many years, the Georgian, Abkhaz and Russian criminals have been getting along perfectly well and used the territory of the republic to transport drugs from the south northwards and from the north southwards.
