SBU expelled famous Georgian thief in law Gia from Ukraine
According to law enforcement bodies, the mafia enforcer's stay in Ukraine was illegal.
Employees of the special services of Ukraine expelled from the country the citizen of Georgia, known in criminal circles as Gia.
As reported on the Security Service of Ukraine’s page on Facebook, the citizen of Georgia, who has the status of enforcer, has been present in Ukraine illegally. «He had been repeatedly convicted for serious crimes. He has served the last punishment in Ukraine for killing for mercenary motives», the message says. Now the thief has been transferred to Georgia.
It is noteworthy that the Security Service of Ukraine does not mention the detainee's name. However, it is known that it is the crime lord Georgy Giorgadze who goes by the name Gia. As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, the 54-year-old Georgian thief in law had problems when passing control on the Georgian-Turkish border (at the Sarpi checkpoint, to be exact). After detention, Georgian security officials automatically charged Giorgadze with part 2 of Art. 223 of the Criminal Code of Georgia (Involvement in the thieves' world). In Georgia, penalty for this crime is a 5- or 10-year sentence. It was assumed that Gia would be taken into custody, but this information has not been confirmed.
