A corporal deserts Georgian army

2009-07-08 17:54

Corporal Tengiz Jakeli recently disappeared from the 5th infantry brigade of Georgian Armed Forces where he was in military service.


A few days later Jakeli notified his command of being abroad. As it is believed in Tbilisi the corporal fled to Turkey where his relatives reside.

The reasons why Georgian soldiers desert are heavy conditions of service, constant fault-finding by local authorities and military officials from Tbilisi making inspection trips round military units, Russian Peacekeeper reports.

Following the so-called "Mukhrovani mutiny" the Georgian army came under a wave of repressions. The Georgian militaries are sure the mutiny was a complete frame-up by President Saakashvili in order to distract common people's attention from oppositional rallies.
