Robbery Attacks Still Occur in Guria

On February 14 armed people attacked old sisters Kharats in the village of Dzimiti in Ozurgeti District.

The robbers wounded 68-year-old Leila, who died on the place. Her sister 78-year-old Tsiala Kharati was wounded in the face. She was taken to Ozurgeti District hospital where she was operated on.

According to the close relative of the family, the sisters were living alone in the house and neighbors heard about the fact on the next day.” The attack was not a robbery, because they did not rob anything”, said the relative.

The criminal situation in Ozurgeti District worsened in 2010. Although nobody comments on the fact in the press centre of Guria regional administration, the facts demonstrate the opposite.

Governor of the village of Shroma in Ozurgeti district Zurab Mzhavanadze was attacked by armed people on January 7. Short time before, dentist in Ozurgeti was wounded in his office by robbers.

Short time ago, shop of construction materials in the city centre was robbed; next day w someone robbed the house of a doctor, from where robbers stole antique things and expensive equipment.

The facts of minor robberies happen almost every day in Ozurgeti District. Damaged people do not apply to the police because they do not hope police will investigate the facts.
