Dato Swan released in courtroom
Ukrainian police did not bother to notify their Georgian colleagues of expatriation of the detained thief in law, although, according to the standards of the international police community, should have.
As the CrimeRussia found out, Georgian thief in law David Gerliani, better known in criminal circles as Dato Swan, has been released in the courtroom. According to recent information, the court found the thief in law guilty of illegal border crossing and fined him 15.000 lari (Georgian national currency).
Previously, the CrimeRussia has told about controversial expatriation of the thief in law from Ukraine to his homeland, Georgia. The fact is that the Ukrainian police did not bother to notify their Georgian colleagues of expatriation of the detained thief in law, although, according to the standards of the international police community, should have.
Recall that deportation of Dato Swan became known due to Georgian MP Givi Targamadze, who reported about it in a social net. According to Targamadze, in Tbilisi airport "there was no any representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs meeting him, thus he could leave the airport, and stayed on the territory of Georgia without any restrictions." As Targamadze added, the Georgian MIA violated the law, as the Ministry was obliged to send their representative to meet the deported thief in law at the airport.
Georgian authorities gave no comments on the issue for a long time, but then published a video of detention of Dato Swan during his attempt to cross the Georgian-Armenian border.
