At a meeting with the governor of the Tskhinvali region, the chairmen of the Geneva discussion expressed hope that the abducted doctor Vazha Gaprindashvili would be released soon.
“We look forward to the release of Vazha Gaprindashvili in the near future”, said the EU special representative in the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia.
A spokesman of President Tskhinvali says the doctor was detained for “illegal border crossing.”
“The decision on the case of Gaprindashvili will be made in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of South Ossetia. So far, he has been detained for two months, is under preliminary investigation, and then the court will make a decision,“- says Murat Dzhioyev.
