Family Members of Detained Opposition Supporter Are Being Watched

13.07.2009
Family members of Kote Kapanadze, a supporter of the New Rights, are being watched by law enforcement officers and strangers; the family lives in the village of Kartubani in Lagodekhi District.

According to Shorena Neparidze, wife of Kapanadze, the family members have been watched since Kote Kapanadze was detained.

Several days before the detention, when he was not suspected yet, strangers broke into our house and demanded IDs and telephone numbers of family members. They were interested to get information about Vazha, Kote’s brother. They inquired about his exact address and occupation besides the political party. Policemen and officers from various departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are watching us everywhere,” said Shorena Neparidze.

Kote Kapanadze, supporter of the New Rights, was detained several days ago by the Investigation Department of Revenues. The detainee is accused of abusing his power. Giorgi Gogichashvili, judge at the Telavi District Court bailed him with 20 000 GEL, however, Tbilisi Appeal Court annulled the order after Prosecutor’s Office appealed against the decision of Telavi District Court and sent Kapanadze to two-month pretrial imprisonment.
