Georgian citizens facing capital punishment for killing a child2011-03-31 18:19
The citizens of Georgia detained in Turkey on a charge of killing a child are facing capital punishment - a life sentence. This was reported by GHN with reference to the statement made by the detainees' attorney Salome Dzhordzhadze. She informed that under the Turkish law, the article, according to which the accusation will be brought against Viola and Ekaterina Orchikidze, implies capital punishment. "The detainees are charged with deliberate murder. According to the Turkish law, this crime implies capital punishment - life sentence. Thus, they've got nothing good in store for them", - the attorney said.
Dzhordzhadze also stated that in view of the specific cruelty of the crime, the court will evidently arrive at a decision in the course of one hearing.
Let us remind you that two citizens of Georgia - mother and daughter Viola and Ekaterina Orchikidze - were arrested in Turkey for the murder of an 11-year-old child. Later, Viola Orchikidze took the blame when she confessed bad relationship with her daughter's stepson. Having quarreled with him, she hit the child with a hammer several times, killed him and then cut the body in pieces.
