Tsereteli – it is not easy to believe their guilt

Vice-Speaker of the Parliament Gigi Tsereteli in his interview to Versia commented about the detained photographers and said that he knows both Gia Abdaladze and Irakli Gedenidze and finds it hard to believe that they are spies. “I think they are in a big misunderstanding. But if they will not be found guilty they will be freed,” Tsereteli said.

“The fact is that a huge force is working against Georgia and our task is to neutralise those dangers. If people involve themselves in an anti Georgian campaign wilfully they should be punished adequately. I really do not want them to be guilty and it is really hard for me to believe their guilt and that is why I need more proof to believe it,” Tsereteli added.
