Doctor Vazha Gaprindashvili, former captive of the occupational regime, arrived in Kvemo Chala village and visited the family of Zaza Gakheladze, Georgian citizen detained by the occupational regime.
The doctor, who spent 48 days imprisoned by the occupants, met with Gakheladze’s wife and pledged support. Gaprindashvili said that his family had undergone through similar pain and claimed that support of everybody – president, government and people – was necessary for justice to win.
According to Gaprindashvili, the occupational regime was spreading contrasting information over Gakheladze’s case. “They lead a new practice to compile a criminal case and not to be limited to the charge of violation of the so-called border,” Gaprindashvili said.
