The Prosecutor's Office of Georgia has pressed charges against offenders known only as O.G. and O.T. for depriving their victim J. Ch. in the Bailari village, Georgia's Marneuli municipality, of the right to freedom and murdering him under aggravated circumstances. Another offender identified only as S.A. was charged for concealing the crime.
According to the statement by the Prosecutor's Office, on 18 September, in the Bailari village of Marneuli Municipality, O. G. and O.T., decided to retaliate against J. Ch. after he insulted their sister; they physically abused him, tied his hands and feet afterward, and drove him to the Marneuli municipality's Alaveri village, where they threw him in an irrigation canal. J.Ch., with his hands and feet tied, died on the spot.
The statement goes on to say that the two murderers' friend S.A. witnessed the crime, but he failed to notify the police.
The police detained the three offenders on 20 September and brought charges against them. The Prosecutor's Office will soon file a motion to the court to demand that the offenders be jailed.
The investigation is underway.
