Why Was Not An Inspection Arranged Under the Earth?
The Judge, the experts and the attorneys were discussing the details of the conclusion (#4580/18) of the numerous experts for two days and very often they were in a curious situation.

On February 19 2009 Tbilisi City Court sentenced Professor Omar Kutsnashvili to four-years in prison The professor is 66-year-old and has been detained for 9 months already. He is the father of Zakaria Kutsnashvili, a former member of the Parliament of Georgia. Omar Kutsnashvili was arrested based on an anonymous letter to the Ministry of Internal Affairs. According to the letter, an organization of which Omar Kutsnashvili was director, had appropriated state funds.
