The attacker of the microfinance organization on Tsereteli Avenue, Levan Zurabashvili, was sentenced to imprisonment as a preventive measure.
On November 20, 31-year-old Levan Zurabashvili broke into a microfinance organization on Tsereteli Avenue and took the people there hostage. After several hours of negotiations, he released the hostages.
The Prosecutor's Office of Georgia has charged Levan Zurabashvili with hostage-taking under Article 144, Part 2, Subparagraph c of the Criminal Code of Georgia, which stipulates the capture of two or more persons as hostages.
