TBILISI, DFWatch–Tbilisi City Court on Saturday added further pretrial detention for former Defense Minister Bacho Akhalaia for the murder of Sergo Tetradze.

Akhalaia’s defense lawyers wanted the court to set a 30,000 lari bail, but the court decided on two months pre-trial detention.

Akhalaia has been in prison for more than a year, as the government has introduced new charges against him. He was acquitted for some of them.

July 2, a day after charges were introduced against former Tbilisi Mayor Gigi Ugulava, the Prosecutor’s Office charged Akhalaia with torture, organizing sexual abuse and abuse of powers.
