Majoriy, opposition comment on scandalous testimony by Melnikov

12.08.14 10:04

The scandalous testimony given by Oleg Melnikov at the court on the case of the murder of Sandro Girgvliani was differently assessed by the representatives of the government of Georgia and the members of the parliamentary minority. Oleg Melnikov pleaded guilty in every episode of the murder of a 26 year-old bank employ. The murder of Sandro Girgvliani was one of the most scandalous and high-profile criminal cases of the governance of the United National Movement, which caused public protests and political movements in the country in 2006.
The Minister of IDPs, Sozar Subari says the yesterday`s testimony proved the assertions of the international court and the current authorities that the former senior officials were involved in this crime and that its investigation was completely forged.
One of the leaders of the United National Movement, Givi Targamadze believes that Melnikov has made a deal with Georgian authorities and the investigation, which is conducting the processes based on the verbal evidences. He denies the involvement of former officials in the crime.
Melnikov reported the details of the incident that occurred in Sharden Bar on the night of the murder. He said briefly after the murder, former CSD chief Data Akhalaia ordered him to sign a testimony, which was already written; he also added that the former government, including president Saakashvili, former chief prosecutor Zurab Adeishvili, and Data Akhalaia, worked out a plan of accusing and arresting four officers for the murder, who would be freed in a few years. According to Melnikov, though he did not work after the crime, he was paid salary on a plastic card permanently.
As for the episode of Okrokana, where Sandro Girgvliani and his friend Levan Bukhaidze were tortured, Melnikov will testify tomorrow.
The 28-year old Girgvliani was brutally murdered after a scuffle at a cafe in Tbilisi, during a birthday party for an Interior Ministry official. The dead body was found with multiple injuries on January 28, 2006, in a suburb of Tbilisi.
