Miron Gorgidze

Thief in law Miron Gorgidze was expelled from Russia on August 31, 2017, although law enforcers read him an order on the undesirability of his stay in the Russian Federation as early as in November 2016. This happened immediately after the thief was released from the Lipetsk colony, where he had served time for possession of drugs.

65-year-old Miron Gorgidze was detained in Shota Rustaveli Tbilisi international airport, as reported by Sputnik-Gergia citing a website of the republic's MIA. The thief was deported from Russia to his homeland on the last day of August.

It is reported that a criminal case under Participation in the thieves' community has been initiated against him. To recall, the very involvement in 'thief in law' category is punishable by imprisonment for a term of 7-10 years and a fine in Georgia. The corresponding article appeared in the Georgian Criminal Code in 2005, soon after Mikhail Saakashvili's team came to power in the country, declaring war on thieves in law.

Let us recall that Gorgidze served his sentence in the Lipetsk colony until November 2016, after he had been sentenced to 3 years and 4 months for illegal acquisition and possession of drugs in large amounts in 2013. However, after his release, law enforcement officers read him the order about the undesirability of his stay in Russia.

It is worth noting that Russian law enforcement agencies had feared that Georgia would not accept the thief by depriving him of his citizenship, because such a precedent existed; namely, in July this year, the Georgian authorities did not let thief in law Suliko Sharikadze back into the country. August 31, 2017, Miriko Kutaissky was deported.
