Thief in law's grandson shot in Georgia
The siloviki are establishing motives and circumstances of the murder.
In the west of Georgia, the grandson of thief in law Guram Potskhishvili and his relative were shot in Ozurgeti, the west of Georgia.
Law enforcement officers found Guram Potskhishvili and his father-in-law's bodies riddled with gunshot wounds and in a car in Ozurgeti. The Ministry of Internal Affairs does not provide details of the incident, confining itself to information on the initiation of a criminal case under Art. 109 of the Criminal Code of Georgia (Intentional Murder).
Meanwhile, the Georgian media say that the murdered Guram Pokhishvili is the heir to the 'thieves' dynasty. Sources say that he was the grandson of the thief in law, who died more than 20 years ago, Guram Potskhishvili Sr. The man shot in the car was tried earlier, but there is no information about his 'thievish' status. Meanwhile, it is known that Potskhishvili Sr. has a son David, nicknamed Dato. The latter was 'crowned' during his term in the Vladimirsky Tsentral in the early 1970s, but in 1991, Dato was denounced by his compatriots in Georgia.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
