2013-01-21 11:53

The former head of the Georgian Border Police, the husband the leader of "Democratic Movement" Nino Burjanadze, Badri Bitsadze has returned to Georgia on January 19, the GHN reported.


Bitsadze decided to return to the country after parliament had granted him the status of politically persecuted person. He fell under the amnesty, which resulted in the release of 190 people recognized as political prisoners.

"The main is that the justice has been restored. I'm happy that this process has already begun, and we must see it through", Badri Bitsadze told reporters upon arrival at Tbilisi International Airport.

As recalled by the News-Georgia, Bitsadze is one of the leaders of the party "Democratic Movement - United Georgia", led by his wife, former parliament speaker Nino Burjanadze. He left Georgia in May 2011, and in August that year he was sentenced to imprisonment on charges of resisting police. In December 2012, he got the status of political exile in Georgia, and in January 2013, after the Prosecutor General's Office had dropped all charges against him, he was pardoned in accordance with the law "On amnesty".
