“When communicating about the release of an illegally detained person, both the “hotline” mechanism and all other tools available to the central government were intensively used. International partners were actively involved in the negotiations.
The central government continues to work actively to bring those persons involved in the murder of Tamaz Ginturi to justice. The work is also underway to release all the citizens of Georgia who are illegally detained in the occupied territories,” reads the information released by the Security Service.
