The Prosecutor's Office demanded 11 years of imprisonment for Tsone Gamsakhurdia, the 34-year old son of Zviad Gamsakhurdia, the late first President of Georgia.


Tsotne is accused of attempted murder of his neighbour, illegal purchase, possession and carrying a weapon, the VZGLYAD reports citing to Georgian mass media.

David Bajelidze was operated and later testified. He said Tsotne Gamsakhurdia didn't shot at him.

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.
