Tsotne Gamsakhurdia, the son of the late first President of Georgia, staying in prison and on another hunger strike, demands Thomas Hammraberg's [CE Commissioner] attention to situation in Georgian prisons.


He called on CE to react properly on facts of reprisal over prisoners by jail administration.

At today's briefing Bidzina Gujabidze, the representative of the Conservative party, said: "Tsotne Gamsakhurdia demands Hammarberg to study this criminal fact and assess it duly."

He said the Conservative demand bringing criminal case over the fact of beating a prisoner.

Tsotne Gamsakhurdia is accused of attempted murder of his neighbour, illegal purchase, possession and carrying a weapon.

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.

For the first time he was arrested on September 3rd 2008, in Tbilisi airport, right after his return from Moscow. He was charged of espionage for Russia and organization of anti-state plot.

Not so long ago Tbilisi Court sentenced the 34-year old Tsotne Gamsakhurdia to 9.5 years of imprisonment.
