In connection with the incident in Mukhrovani the Interior Ministry of Georgia detained 20 people. According to the Ministry, 7 of them are military policemen who were trying to hide but were caught in Ujarama village.


Three more; Koba Otanadze, Levan Amiridze and Giya Kriliashvili - are being wanted. 13 more detained are civilians.

According to yesterday evening's messages, Vakhtang Maisaya, the military expert and the doctor of political sciences, was also arrested. Tentative information states he is suspected of espionage.

Maisaya's surroundings said he was detained in the university, later his flat was searched, computer and disks confiscated. His family says the scientist is currently staying in one of the MIA buildings.

Last evening the Ministry published the video with confession of Mamuka Gorgiashvili, the commander of Mukhrovani battalion.

He stated that his ex-chief, Koba Otonadze with some unknown people, came to his battalion and called for him to advance to Tbilisi

"I was said opposition is waiting for military with machinery", Gorgiashvili said and added he was promised a considerable sum in case he agreed.

Let us remind; yesterday a tank battalion near Tbilisi declared insubordination to the authorities and demanded the dialog of leadership of Georgia with opposition. The Interior Ministry reported of the prevented armed coup, President Mikheil Saakashvili participated in negotiations with mutineers, the majority of which were detained.

These events took place one day before the beginning of joint NATO maneuvers in Georgia. The authorities of Georgia suspected insubordination action organizers in attempt to derange the exercise, and Russia- in interference in domestic affairs. The Kremlin advised the authors of these statements to turn to a doctor. Georgian opposition, which has been protesting for a month running, believes that the incident was provoked by Georgian authorities to distract attention of the people from real problems.
