Head of Israeli MFA demanding to free Israeli from Georgian prison

2011-01-17 11:42

12345.jpegLast week, foreign Minister of Israel Avigdor Lieberman sent a stern letter to his Georgian colleague Grigol Vashadze demanding to cease the legal prosecution of businessmen Roni Fuks and Zeev Frenkel, Izrus periodical reports. They were arrested in Batumi in October 2010 and are presently accused of an attempted bribing of Deputy Financial Minister Avtandil Kharaidze. 


According to Ediot Akhronot newspaper, Lieberman claims the accusations against the businessmen to be ungrounded and unsubstantiated.

The fact that Georgian authorities invited Fuks and Frenkel to their county and had them arrested afterwards may become a serious obstacle for the development of relationship between the two states, for the Israeli businessmen are now afraid to initiate any business with the Georgian side.

Lieberman underlined that it destroys the economic contacts between the countries that have developed so rapidly over the recent years.

As was reported by IzRus portal, 11 January 2010 legal proceedings were resumed in Tbilisi concerning the case of Fuks and Frenkel. Israeli side is sure that the Georgian authorities are framing up the case so long as they have to pay Fuks a 100-million-dollar forfeit.
