Seven More “Mukhrovani Mutineers” Plead Guilty

2009-11-20 17:10

Another group of the accused of the mutiny at the military base in Mukhrovani (seven persons) agreed to a plea bargain with the prosecution.


As Civil Georgia reports seven officers, none of them supposed organizers of the mutiny, agreed to plead guilty of insubordination to the authorities. Their cases will now be considered as new proceedings. It is unknown what verdict is in store for them yet.

Earlier 13 out of 41 defendants struck a plea bargain. Ex commander of a special force unit Giya Gvaladze, a major witness for the prosecution, was among them. As a result he was sentenced to 2 years' imprisonment (initially 7-15 years' imprisonment was looming for him).

This time Georgy Amiridze, David Dzhguniashvili, Irakli Odikadze, Akaki Aptsiauri, David Okruashvili, Sandro Veshaguri and Zura Mosulashvili agreed to the bargain. In the past they all served in a ranger battalion.

As GeorgiaTimes reported earlier on May 5 the command of the tank battalion stationed in Mukhrovani locality declared disobedience to the authorities. Negotiations with the rebellious militaries lasted for over 4 hours resulting in the staff laying down the arms. The Interior Ministry of Georgia declared conspiracy exposure. Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili took part in the negotiations with the militaries. According to official information 33 persons were detained on the case, one was killed as a result of a special operation. Twelve detainees are civilians and 20 are militaries. Later the number of the accused grew to 41. Most suspects (ex high-ranking militaries) were detained on May 5.
