Zviad Gamsakhurdia’s widow wants to re-bury her husband in ancestral cemetery

Manana Archvadze-Gamsakhurdia, the widow of the late first President of Georgia, wants to bury the remains of her spouse in the territory of Kolkhia tower, the ancestral cemetery of Gamsakhurdias.


She claimed it at today's protest action in Mtatsminda pantheon of writers and public figures at the grave of the ex-head of state - Georgia Times correspondent.

The supporters of the late President's widow dug the grave by half, but priests from St. David's church kept them from completion. They tried to persuade Manana Archvadze-Gamsakhurdia, but have been failing so far.

The woman says that after everything that was done to her son Tsotne, she decided to break up with the authorities.

"We want to live independently from them, in our house, for ourselves, and let them [government] leave us in peace. They try my son over false charge, whereas many of them should be tried for real crimes," she said.

In her view, this government uses what her husband achieved - the freedom and independence of Georgia, but doesn't value it, and lost many of these achievements, like the territorial integrity of the country.

The widow demands the release of her son Tsotne, who has been on hunger strike for 58 days and is in grievous condition now.

Previously Georgian TV companies reported she wanted to put the coffin with her husband's remains near the Ministry for Penitentiary. The action participants called these statements lies.
