Father of schoolboy assassinated in Georgia treats work of parliamentary commission as shameful

The temporary investigation commission of the Georgian parliament, which dealt with the murder case of two schoolboys, revealed new circumstances of the crime, including one of its participants, not established earlier by the prosecutor's office. Zaza Saralidze, the father of the killed teens, believes that the commission failed to cope with its mission, and announced resumption of protests from September 10.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 6 the Georgian parliament set up an investigating commission on the murder case of two Tbilisi schoolboys.

On May 31, protests began in Tbilisi, caused by the court decision, which partially acquitted two accused teenagers. Zaza Saralidze was the initiator of protests.

Saralidze believes that "high-ranking officials" in the ruling party prevent the establishment of the killer.

Nestan Londaridze, an advocate, has pointed out that the draft conclusion fails to indicate the killer of one of the schoolboys, who inflicted 10-11 wounds, including the mortal one.

Malkhaz Machalikashvili, the father of Temirlan Machalikashvili, who was killed in a special operation in Pankisi, will join the protests; he demands to punish the perpetrators of his son's death.
