TBILISI, DFWatch–It could have been a scene from a Hollywood movie, the moment when a prisoner escaped from Rustavi City Court on Wednesday.

According to reports, the escapee was in the waiting room for defendants when he said he was feeling sick.

An ambulance was called.

When the emergency crew arrived, he escaped while he was tended to by the medical personnel.

The Ministry of Corrections confirmed the amazing escape in a short statement.

The statement is accompanied by a photo of the escapee, Otar Varamishvili (right) and a request that anyone who has information about this man should contact the ministry.

In February, 2015, a prisoner escaped from a court building in Gurjaani, but was caught a few days later in Batumi, a city in the southwest of Georgia, not far from the Turkish border.
