Court sent Tsotne Gamsakhurdia, a son of late President Zviad Gamsakhurdia, to a two-month pre-trial detention on October 30.
Gamsakhurdia was arrested on October 28 and charged with a murder attempt and illegal possession of firearm. Police said Gamsakhurdia shot and wounded his neighbor.
Gamsakhurdia’s attorney lawyer said her client denies the accusation; she also said that unknown person hit Gamsakhurdia into his head on the night when the crime was committed close to his house in Tbilisi, as a result of which he lost consciousness and does not remember what happened afterwards.
Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was arrested in September and charged with espionage in favor of Russia and for alleged conspiracy to overthrow the government; he was then released on GEL 20,000 bail, but these charges have not been dropped since then.
