In Tbilisi, they wanted to blow up the car of the head of the author’s society, suspected of having links with the Russian Federation
The incident happened on Monday night on Zandukeli Street, near Gvritishvili’s house. For several hours the area was cordoned off by the police.
On the wheels of the car near which the forensic expert worked, traces of soot are visible. At the same time, local residents say they did not hear the sounds of the explosion and did not notice anything suspicious.
Gvarishvili himself also denies the fact.
“I don’t know what you are talking about,” he told a journalist when asked about the investigative activities on Zandukeli Street.
The investigation was started on the fact of damage or destruction of things. So far, no suspects have been arrested.
“Hera” is engaged in copyright protection in Georgia and abroad. The opposition Droa party said in April that the Russian Authors’ Society (RAO) tried to use the Georgian organization to circumvent sanctions in order to transfer royalties to its authors in Russia. As evidence, the politicians published a letter sent by RAO to colleagues in Estonia.
Hera called this information a lie. The organization said they did not agree to RAO’s offer to act as an intermediary.
