2010-03-01 15:17

Experts of the CE Commissioner for Human Rights Tomas Hammarberg will prepare a report on return of three South Ossetians, kidnapped, according to the statements of Tskhinvali, by Georgian special services, said David Sanakoev, the South Ossetian leader's Plenipotentiary for Human Rights - RIA Novosti.


On Saturday Hammarberg paid a working visit to South Ossetia and met with Sanakoyev as well. The Commissioner was accompanied by two independent experts: Bryce Pegg and Nicolas Sebire. According to Sanakoyev, they are involved to return three South Ossetians: Alan Khugayev, Alan Khachirov, and Soltan Pliyev.

"They [experts] will conduct monitoring and in the end of their work will make a report, reflecting how effective the Georgian investigation works. We have a suggestion that Georgian investigators are concealing certain information. The report will be made in approximately end March," Sanakoyev said and added the monitors will watch the process of investigation closely.

He reminded that the three teenagers disappeared on October 13th 2008, somewhere between settlements Dmenis and Khelchua of Tskhinvali region of South Ossetia.

In the view of the Osetian side, they were kidnapped, whereas Georgia denies being privy to kidnapping.

Sanakoyev added the experts had already met the relatives of the teenagers and interviewed them in detail.

They will be working in Georgia and South Ossetia for about 3 weeks. They also plan to meet with South Ossetian investigators, Sanakoyev noted.
