GYLA Appeals European Court regarding the Torture of Giorgi Antsukhelidze

13.04.2010
Georgian Young Lawyers Association has spent one more appeal to the European Court of Human Rights regarding the August of 2008.

The suit is about the Georgian soldier Giorgi Antsukhelidze who was tortured and then killed by Russian and Ossetian soldiers during the war in August of 2008.

Giorgi Antsukhelidze was soldier of the 41st battalion of theVaziani brigade # 4. After the clashes on August 9, 2008 in Tskhinvali he disappeared and was declared missing for almost 5 months. On December 12, 2008 DNA expertise identified the body of Giorgi Antsukhelidze; he was buried on the brother’s cemetery in Mukhatgverdi.

Two various video-recordings were spread by internet in January of 2009.  In the video-recordings it was shown how Georgian soldier was tortured and beaten by Ossetian and Russian militants. The family members of Antsukhelidze recognized Giorgi in the tortured person.

The applicants in the suit to the Strasbourg Court are widow of Giorgi Antsukhelidze Maka Chikviladze and their two under-age children. GYLA appeals violation of the articles 2 (right to life), article 3 (prohibition of torture), article 5 (right to freedom and inviolability) and article 13 (right to effective legal aid) of the European Convention.

The GYLA claims that violation of the abovementioned articles of the convention by Russian Federation in regard with Giorgi Antsukhelidze and the applicants was grounded by ethnic origin and citizenship of Georgia; it breaches Article 14 of the Convention (prohibition of discrimination).
