"Accidental death" in the police station2012-04-24 15:05
Passions around the murder of a local opposition activist Solomon Kimeridze in the city of Khashuri do not cease. He was arrested on suspicion of committing a minor crime, but the next day, police returned his corpse to his relatives. People are trying to understand what had happened.
Solomon or Soso Kimeridze, as he was called here, was 46 years old. He lived not far from Khashuri, in the village of Kvishheti. February 27, district police officers took him into police station with perfect health. And February 28, they brought his corpse to his parents. On the corpse there were signs of terrible torture.
Officially, he fell from the third to the second floor of the police building. Ex-ombudsman, Mr Subari, who is one of the leaders of the coalition "Georgian Dream", came to the family of the deceased to ascertain the circumstances. He shared his conclusions on this case.
"Solomon Kimeridze was an active member of the opposition. He was not a member of any party, but he openly expressed his opposition to the government in public places. As you can see, they wanted to intimidate him and to make keep silence, that's why he was taken to the police station. They came up with the version: allegedly, someone had stolen an aluminum pot in the village, and Kimeridze was suspected in this. They made an emphasis on him, since he allegedly had been convicted once", Subari said.
In fact, it was not so. Under the communists, there was summer camp in Kvishheti, which was dismantled for parts by the villagers - somebody took the fence, somebody - the bricks. Kimeridze picked up the metal door and brought to scrap metal. That was his crime. Moreover, in those years, almost the whole country was engaged in this "business". Soso Kimeridze was unemployed. In the village of Kvishheti, the people considered him a decent man, he enjoyed their respect.
Subari was surprised by the silence of the villagers. "I saw frightened and silent people. Apparently, someone tried to intimidate Soso too, but they have failed, and the result is obvious", former ombudsman said.
As for the details of the case: Soso Kimeridze was illegally detained by the police, he was not accused, he did not have the status of a witness, and no one had the right to detain and question him. According to the police, Kimeridze fell down the stairs from the third to the second floor. No one has seen Kimeridze falling in the so-called "transparent" police building. The case is being examined by the European Court of Human Rights. His relatives hope that the authorities will be responsible for the murder of a man in police custody.
