Ministry of Interior of Georgia is not looking for Bitsadze
Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia declares that it is not engaged in searching Badri Bitsadze - husband of former parliamentary speaker Nino Burjanadze. According to the "Georgia-News", citing information released by the head of the Information and Analytical Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia Shotu Utiashvili, family members of Bitsadze have not contacted with the law enforcement authorities with an application about his disappearance.
"Apparently, family members are not looking for Badri Bitsadze, in any case, Mrs. Burjanadze or other family member did not appeal to us with an application about his disappearance and police had not yet put him on the wanted list. So, the Ministry has not yet begun operation to search for Bitsadze" - said Utiashvili.
Bitsadze was charged with the resisting police during the actions of protest of the "National Assembly", and he has a few more days to pay the bail of 100 thousand GEL established by the court as a preventive measure. However, his location remains unknown - he disappeared after the events of May 26.
His wife - Nino Burjanadze - not once said that she did not know the location of her husband. She also refused to pay the bail for him and this was a sign of solidarity with other detainees-protesters on May 26, who have no money to pay bail.
According to MIA, Bitsadze is accused on the second part of the 353rd article of the Criminal Code of Georgia - the confrontation, threat or violence against the defenders of public order or other government officials with the group. This crime is punishable by imprisonment from four to seven years.
