Kalandadze told about the future of Georgian citizens detained in Malaysia2010-12-06 16:36
Georgian Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze's speech delivered after Georgian delegation's visit to Malaysia, where two Georgian women suspected of drug trafficking were detained, did not sound much optimistic, Novosti-Georgia reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The delegation comprised representatives of the Georgian MFA Consular Department and Ministry of Justice. They spent two weeks in Malaysia and met with the detainees Babutsa Gordadze and Daredjan Kokhtashvili and representatives of the country's law-enforcement bodies. The only good piece of news given by Kalandadze is that the women are in a satisfactory state.
"The only positive thing we can mention is their satisfactory physical condition", - Kalandadze said.
According to Malaysian law, the women may be sentenced to death on a charge of drug traffic.
"We are using all the available leverages, both legal and diplomatic, to avoid the death penalty. Unfortunately, we cannot give any guarantees, for the relevant decision will be taken by the Court of Malaysia", - Kalandadze pointed out. She underlined that an additional investigation and a chemical expertise will be held on the case.
The next court session on the case of one of the arrested, Babutsa Gordadze, will be held today, while another one, on Daredzhan Kokhtashvili's case, will be held on December 13.
Let us remind you that the Georgian women were arrested in the airport of Kuala Lumpur on October 27 for trafficking drugs to the amount exceeding 1,5 million dollars.
