Tea Tsulukiani, Justice Minister said that she had no details about interrogation of former ministers of economy and infrastructure Dimitri Kumsishvili and Zurab Alavidze within the framework of the investigation.
Tsulukiani said that it would have been violation of Article 8 of Law on Prosecutor’s Office on her part. “I observe Article 8 of Law on Prosecutor’s Office like believers respect the Bible. Politics should not interfere into activities of Prosecutor’s Office,” Tsulukiani stated. She added that she trusted investigators and hoped that they would make the right decision.
Prosecutor’s Office said it did not rule out questioning of Kumsishvili and Alavidze once again. The ongoing investigation concerns embezzlement and misappropriation of state funds in the two ministries.
