Four years have passed since the murder of Georgian citizen Giga Otkgozria by occupying forces in the village of Khurcha.
The offender, who shot Otkhozoria six times on territory administered by the central Georgian government, is known to the public and has been sentenced in absentia, however, the leadership of the occupied region refuses to punish him.
The State Representative of Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti once again expressed his condolences to the family of Otkhozoria. He said that people are still not protected beyond the occupation line.
According to the Mayor of Zugdidi, Giga Otkhozoria is a symbol of the struggle against the occupation.
