German Ambassador to Georgia, Hubert Knirsch, says, the society should focus on the family of Luka Siradze. All the rest can be discussed later when the situation calms down.
‘I am deeply saddened by this tragedy. I express condolences over the family of Luka Siradze.
I think making political interpretations is not appropriate now.
We have to focus on the family of the teenager, and all the rest can be discussed later when the situation calms down,’ Hubert Knirsch said.
Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia expressed condolences over the tragic death of 15-year-old Luka Siradze earlier today and released the statement. Georgian PM said severe punishment will be imposed on everyone, regardless of rank or office, implicated in any offense by the State Inspector’s Service.
A 15-year-old juvenile, who was injured when attempting to commit suicide, died in a hospital on December 17. Iashvili Children’s Clinic confirmed information to Georgian First Channel. Doctors said the teenager’s condition was severe and he was attached to the artificial breathing device. Foreign invited doctors were also involved in the treatment.
The teenager jumped from the 9th floor of a block of apartments in Dighomi district of Tbilisi on December 12. The incident was preceded by a conflict at Green School. The juvenile was questioned by the police.
The lawyer claims that his defendant was subjected to psychological pressure during questioning. He said that law enforcers were forcing the teenager to admit to having committed hooliganism.
An investigation into the case is ongoing.
