Ex-Police Chief in Borjomi Arrested over Alleged Abuse of Detainee
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Nov.'12 / 23:39

Prosecutor’s office said on November 30 that former chief of police in Borjomi was arrested for allegedly ordering his subordinates to rape a detainee with chair leg.

Mamuka Khvedeliani, who served as police chief in Borjomi since 2005 before early 2012, was UNM’s majoritarian MP candidate in Borjomi, where he lost the race to a Georgian Dream’s candidate after garnering 36.5% of votes.

The prosecutor’s office said that Khvedeliani was arrested in connection to inhuman and degrading treatment of a detainee on January 1, 2009, involving beating and burning an ear with cigarettes.

“Upon the order from Khvedeliani, two policemen… raped the victim with chair’s leg,” the prosecutor’s office said.

The prosecutor’s office also said that it was investigating other cases of alleged “cruel treatment of detainees” by former police chief of Borjomi.

After serving as the police chief, Khvedeliani became head (gamgebeli) of the Borjomi municipality in February, 2012.
