Georgian Prosecutor's Office intends to arrest Giorgadze

2012-12-04 11:38

The Prosecutor's Office of Georgia is going to reconsider the issue of removal of the status of wanted from the ex-head of security Igor Giorgadze. This was stated by the Minister of Justice of Georgia Tea Tsulukiani, the Rosbalt reported.


According to Tsulukiani, any citizen of Georgia can return home; but if he has the status of a wanted, he would be detained at the border, just like in the case with Okruashvili.

"In the event of Giorgadze's return to Georgia he will have the opportunity to prove his innocence, and he will be given the legal means", said Tsulukiani.

Giorgadze now is living abroad in political emigration. He was accused of involvement in the assassination of ex-President Eduard Shevardnadze and included into the international wanted list, the Caucasian Knot recalls. On December 3 he announced his intent to return to the homeland and asked the Prosecutor General's Office to stop prosecution against him. In 2006, he was also charged of "plotting to overthrow the government".

Ex-minister's lawyer Ketevan Chabukiani has already made a claim to the Prosecutor's Office with a request to remove the status of the wanted from Giorgadze. This can be done in the near future. Lawyer has also appealed to members of parliament to recognize Igor Giorgadze political refugee.
