MIA claimed caught two spies

2009-05-08 10:44

Last evening in Georgia Colonel Irakli Batkuashvili, the ex-diplomat and ex-military attaché of Georgia to NATO was detained over the charge of espionage, reported Onise Mebonia, his attorney.


Before 2004 Batkuashvili was the head of the Partnership for Peace program coordination staff, from 2004 to 2006 -the military attaché of Georgia to NATO, then headed the department of the strategical planning and military policy of the Joint Staff of the Armed Forces of Georgia.

One day before Vakhtang Maisaya, the military expert, was arrested, he is already charged of espionage and may be imprisoned for up to 12 years.

After Maisaya's arrest the MIA spread the video with his confession of being the agent of Russian special services and having provided the Russian side hourly with secret information about deployment of military forces in the days of the August war.

Irakli Sesiashvili, the military expert, doubted that Maisaya could be aware of deployment and movements of the Georgian armed forces as, in Sesiashvili's view, even the highest commandment had no such information those days.

Iosiph Tsiskarishvili, the political scientist, shares the similar view and suggests that Maisaya was just reading the text he was given.
