Georgia to help France fight Georgian mafia
In the near future, two more investigators will be sent to serve abroad.
Georgian police have joined the fight against organized crime in France. Law enforcers will assist in the investigation of cases in which Georgians are suspected. The corresponding agreement has been signed by Georgian Interior Minister Georgy Gakharia and French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner.
“Georgian officers will be directly involved in the investigation process of the French police, especially when Georgian citizens commit crimes in France,” Gakharia told journalists.
He said that one police officer from Georgia is already working in France, but his efforts are not enough. In the near future, two more investigators will be sent to serve in France.
In addition, Gakharia noted that the agencies will jointly conduct “preventive measures” when it comes to Georgian bandits.
Interior Minister Castaner stressed that first of all they have to fight organized crime and those who form the mafia, as well as terrorist cells.
