2009-12-02 15:46

Tsotne Gamsakhurdia, the son of the late first President of Georgia, accused of attempted murder of his neighbour, addressed U.S. President Barack Obama and leader of the EU countries.


In this letter he claims the investigation of his case goes non- objectively, in the way the authorities want it - He mentioned that the investigators didn't interrogate the only witness of the incident [Gamsakhurdia's attorney had stated the same before], and didn't consider the conclusion of the expert.

Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was arrested on October 27th over the charge of murder. He refuses to plead guilty and his hunger strike has been lasting for 25 days.

He was put in a prison hospital. As his attorney, Keti Bekauri says, his heath condition is grievous.

For the first time Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was arrested on September 3rd 2008, in Tbilisi airport, right after his return from Moscow. He was charged of espionage for Russia and organization of anti-state plot.

The ground was the tape of his talk with Konstantin Gamsakhurdia, his stepbrother, made in the course of protest actions of autumn 2007. Tsotne, that time staying in Moscow, reproached opposition for indecisiveness and lack of action. After the first arrest he was also charged of wounding Georgian water polo player Avtandil Maglakelidze in 1999, Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was released on September 18th 2008,after GEL 20 000 [appr. USD 12 500] were paid as bail.
