Bomb hoax update: two schools and a bank evacuated

by | Sep 19, 2013

TBILISI, DFWatch–Wednesday there were two more false bomb reports in Georgia.

The target of one of the hoax calls was the central office of Bank of Georgia. No bomb was discovered.

An adult was apprehended and may be risking up to three years in jail.

The other call targeted Dvabzu school in Ozurgeti in the west of the country. Since there are two schools with the same name, both schools were evacuated.

The police say two 12 year old pupils at the school were behind the hoax.

There have been a dozen crank calls about bombs in Georgia the last two weeks, most of them made by minors. The government is introducing tougher sentences and holding parents accountable for minors who make false terrorism reports.
