As reported by RBK, Gamsakhurdia in his appeal criticized the Georgian judicial system hard and accused the country's authorities of suppressing the freedom of speech and human rights.
"In our region, Georgia is considered to be one of the USA's ally and I believe you'll be interested to hear an alternative version of the reality different from those PR-actions that the Georgian government lavishly uses to stupefy the international community", - says the son of the former Georgian president.
Also, in his letter, Gamsakhurdia asks Obama to carry out an expertise of the situation with political prisoners in Georgia.
Let us remind you that in April 2010, Tsotne Gamsakhuradia was sentenced to 9,5 years of imprisonment for an attempted deliberate murder and illegal keeping and bearing of fire weapon. Besides, the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Probation, Execution of Sentences and Legal Assistance of Georgia brought another charge against him. According to the investigation, on June 7, 2010, Tsotne Gamsakhurdia offered a 500-lari bribe to an officer of a medical treatment facility for prisoners for providing certain information to him, as well as for the secret delivery of correspondence outside the place of detention. In this respect, the court extended the term of imprisonment for the former Georgian president's son for another 5 years.
