David Bajelidze was operated and later testified. He said Tsotne Gamsakhurdia didn't shot at him.
The late President's son claimed he himself was attacked and hit unconscious, and he came to himself only in his house. The medical expertise confirmed it.

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.
