Family of Georgian man murdered by Abkhazia border guard reiterate Russia’s responsibility for his death
The family of a Georgian man who was murdered at a checkpoint by an Abkhaz ‘border guard’ have maintained Russia’s responsibility for his killing in their reply to observations made by the Russian Government submitted to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) on 30 July 2019.
Giga Otkhozoria was driving with two acquaintances from Zugdidi in Georgia to Abkhazia to deliver food for a family funeral. One of the ‘border guards’ shot Giga four times: the last and fatal shot was to his head.
