“The government had a certain obligation before the family of the deceased business tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili that all dirty activities carried out against the late businessman would be responded,” Irakli Sesiashvili, Chairman of the Parliamentary Defense and Security Committee said.
According to Sesiashvili, one could ask why the case was not investigated in 2016-2017. However, he claimed that publication of the material by Prosecutor’s Office was not connected to the pre-election period. “Investigative process has its specifics and requires time,” Sesiashvili stated. He added that Prosecutor’s Office had no facts to confirm the plotted crime before.
The Georgian Chief Prosecutor’s Office today released an audio recording of a telephone conversation held between Giorgi Dgebuadze, former official of Constitutional Security Department (CSD) of Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) nicknamed Mastera and a security officer of the deceased business tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili. The audio is about plotting Patarkatsishvili’s murder.
Three former officials of CSD are presented charges on the fact of exceeding authorities and organizing the murder.
