According to Kbilashvili, the charges relate to an incident which occurred in February 2010. 19 servicemen of the Guard Support Department refused to do morning exercises, having accounted the refusal for the night duty. February 18, these soldiers were transferred from Tbilisi to the base in Senaki, where, according to the investigation, they were met by the then Defense Minister Bacho Akhalaia, Deputy Chief of the Joint Staff Giorgi Kalandadze and several officials of the Ministry.
The Prosecutor claims that at the base in Senaki the soldiers had suffered verbal and physical abuse, and then they were forced to strip to the waist and run. Further, Bacho Akhalaia ordered to lock the soldiers in the bath, where they spent three nights and two days without food and beds.
Recall, former Interior Minister of Georgia Bacho Akhalaia was arrested on November 6. According to his lawyer David Dekanoidze, Akhalaia was charged with abuse of office.
The cause of the accusations against Akhalaia was the complaints to the Prosecutor General's office from former employees of the department.
