Tbilisi City Court


TBILISI, DFWatch–Tbilisi City Court on Saturday placed a man suspected of murdering two policemen in pre-trial detention.

The defense did not object to the Prosecutor General’s Office request for detention.

The suspect Shalva Abuladze and his lawyer said during the hearing that they agree with the ruling because Abuladze would be in danger outside.

During the hearing, Abuladze said that his ‘biggest enemy’ is Mamuka Khazaradze, head of TBC Bank, whom he blames for having ending up in this situation.

The pre-trial hearing is scheduled for May 22. Abuladze is charged with having murdered two policemen on January 23 and on April 4, and for illegally purchasing, owning and carrying a gun.
