FORMER GEORGIAN PROSECUTOR GENERAL IMPLICATED IN FAILURE TO SOLVE ABDUCTION CASE
Former senior Georgian Interior Ministry official Bato Saginadze has filed a claim against the Georgian government with the European Court of Human Rights, Caucasus Press reported on 25 June. Saginadze accused Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili, who in early 2004 held the post of prosecutor-general, of removing from the records evidence Saginadze discovered about the abduction in 2001 of Levan Kaladze, brother of international soccer player Kakha Kaladze. Saginadze reportedly uncovered evidence of the involvement in the kidnapping of international criminal groupings that have links to unnamed, highly-placed Georgian government officials. Acting on Saginadze's findings, then Interior Minister Giorgi Baramidze launched a raid in March 2004 on the headquarters in Svaneti of a criminal mafia (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 26 March 2004). Saginadze was dismissed from his post shortly after that raid. It is still unclear whether the bodies discovered at that location two months ago include that of Levan Kaladze (see "RF
E/RL Newsline," 6 and 11 May 2005). LF
