2010-04-30 14:45

According to South-Ossetian President's Deputy Authorized Representative for Post-Conflict Settlement Merab Chigoev, the South-Ossetian party has got all the evidence proving that, at least, seven citizens of South Ossetia who are thought to be missing were captured by the Georgian security agencies, IA Res reports.


"At present, they are either kept in isolation places in the territory of Georgia, or they are already dead, which would be a real tragedy for us, - he said. - We demand then that their bodies should be given to us".

Chigoev underlined the following: Tskhinval insists upon clearing up the fate of the missing citizens of South Ossetia. Besides, International Committee of the Red Cross promised to help the South-Ossetian party on the matter.

"I have an impression that being a neutral organization they cannot openly state their position; however, they understand that our position is right and they support us", - Chigoev summed up.

One of these days, a meeting has been held between the representatives of Russia, South Ossetia and Georgia under the aegis of International Committee of the Red Cross to the north-west of the Georgian town of Gori. The meeting was focused upon the fate of the missing persons that disappeared in the course of the August 2008 conflict.

As was reported by ICRC press-service, in the course of the meeting the parties discussed specific coordinated measures aimed at providing the families of the missing people with the information about their fate. Besides, all the parties expressed their interest in improving the coordination of the judicial and medical actions in order to facilitate the human remains identification.

The scheduled meeting will be held on June, 8 under the aegis of ICRC.
