Questioning of witnesses has begun in the case of the former owner of the Chreli Abanoebi sulphur baths. Grigol Khizanishvili is accusing the Ministry of the Economy and the Prosecutor General’s Office of acquiring property through blackmail. The case relates to a 2006 incident when, according to Mr. Khizanishvili, two employees of the Prosecutor General’s Office demanded that he signed the ownership of the baths over to the Ministry of the Economy, threatening to arrest his young son and his son-in-law, if he were to refuse. Mr. Khizanishvili states that he handed the baths over to the Ministry without receiving any financial compensation, in order to protest his family’s security. He initiated the legal case in this matter following the change in government. His family members have already been questioned. The lawyer Vakhtang Kanashvili adds that several cases of a similar nature are currently being investigated, although only some of the witnesses have been questioned up until now.
