The Prosecutor General of Georgia Archil Kbilashvili has announced the creation of a group of eight people who will be engaged in investigation of crimes committed during and after the war in South Ossetia in August 2008, the RIA Novosti reports.


"The Prosecutor General entrusted a criminal investigation to the staff of the Department of Military Police under the Prosecutor General's Office, Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Defense," said in a statement of the department on Tuesday.

Georgian authorities have acknowledged that military action in South Ossetia in August 2008 had been unleashed by the Georgian side. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili in mid-April.

Having made a sensational statement Ivanishvili put the blame for what has happened on the president Mikheil Saakashvili and previous authorities.

At the same time, the Prime Minister expressed his intention to condemn the actions of the president, not only publicly, but also with the assistance of the competent authorities.
