Photographer Irakli Gedenidze, who was detained in 2011 on charge of espionage, today publicized new circumstances into one of the high-profile cases in recent history of Georgia. During the court trial Gedenidze recalled the day when he was detained and gave scandalous evidence. Gedenidze said that he was taken to a cemetery where he was beaten up by 5 people and then was forced to kneel at the so-called Moduli building under threat of a gun.  He accused law-enforcers of physical and psychological pressure and blackmailing. Gedenidze remembered about how his testimony forced to recognize the guilt was recorded by a camera-man of Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA). The so-called Photographers’ Case was discussed at Tbilisi City Court earlier this afternoon. Gedenidze linked his detention to distribution of photos reflecting May 26, 2011 protest’s violent dispersal in Tbilisi and repeated the menacing phrase told by Irma Nadirashvili, deputy head of ex-president’s administration. On July 7, 2011, the Counter-Intelligence Department of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia detained four Georgian citizens on suspicion of espionage: Irakli Gedenidze, a photographer for the Press Service of President of Georgia; his spouse, Natia Gedenidze, photographer for the Georgian newspaper Prime Time; Zurab Kurtsikidze, a photographer for the European Pressphoto Agency in Georgia; and Giorgi Abdaladze, a photographer for Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia (MIA).
