Georgia could arrange the shelling of the prosecutor's apartment in South Ossetia - opinion
Well-known public figure of South Ossetia Oleg Kudukhov believes that the attack on the prosecutor general of the country Taimuraz Khugaev could be organized with the participation of the Georgian special services.
"This is not the first assassination attempt on the prosecutor general. They have occured repeatedly even before 2008. And that time, the Georgian special services were behind these attempts - this is obvious. There even have been the victims: I remember the prosecutor general's car was blown up; driver was very seriously injured and a young girl, an employee of prosecutor general, who was in the car, was killed", Kudukhov told in an interview to GeorgiaTimes.
"It is likely that the current attempt was also arranged by the Georgian special services - it is probably. It were they who benefit from the destabilization of society. Everything is calm this moment and such actions could give new impetus to the opposition and make sure that, God forbid, the Ossetians begin civil war", he stressed.
"Terrorist attacks in South Ossetia took place regularly until 2008. And those people who collaborated with the Georgian special services - they have not gone away. They're just lurking and waiting for the right moment. And they now have the opportune moment to destabilize the situation in the South Ossetian society", Oleg Kudukhov added.
Recall, in the morning December 6, the apartment of the General Prosecutor of the Republic Taimuraz Khugaev was shelled.
According to witnesses, the shot was made from the corner of neighbouring house. As a result, the building, where General Prosecutor lived, a hole diameter of about 30 centimeters arose, and windows of the neighboring houses broken.
Khugaev told that during the shelling, he was in the apartment with his wife and two young children. "Fortunately, nobody was hurt, because the trajectory of the shot has changed, and the shell hit the windowsill," - said the General Prosecutor of South Ossetia.
Khugaev also noted that the local security services have already got the information, who could be the organizer of the assassination attempt. "Now we must find and detain the executor", he added.
