In Istanbul Godfather of Badri Kutaisi died
Tariel Potshveriya died due to cancer.
It is became known that the night before in Istanbul the Georgian thief in law Tariel Potshveriya, better known as Taras and Kokono, died. Previously, the CrimeRussia has repeatedly reported that the thief in law suffered from cancer for many years.
In early June of this year it became known that on the decision of the Tbilisi City Court Potshveriya, who was serving a 6-year prison sentence for membership of the thieves' world, was released. The employee of Themis postponed execution of the sentence of the kingpin and allowed him to indefinitely leave the territory of the country for medical treatment abroad. The thief's lawyer tried several times to secure his release for health reasons, and in the end he succeeded. In which country Potshveriya was going for treatment, it was not reported, and now it turned out that it was Turkey. Later, the defender of kingpin reported that if the state of his client deteriorates, he will return to Georgia and continue to serve his sentence in prison. But it is not meant to be.
According to the CrimeRussia's data, 57-year-old thief in law was born in Kutaisi. He was crowned at the age of 26 years with consent of Kvezho, Tamaz Kutaisi and others. He is considered to be the Godfather of Gishasho and Badri Kutaisi, Goodge Kutaisi and others.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
