Tsotne Gamsakhurdia

Tsotne Gamsakhurdia, son of Georgia's first president, Zviad Gamsakhurdia, has been remanded in custody for two months by decision of a Tbilisi Court.

The judge rejected the defence claim of insufficient evidence against Gamsakhurdia.

Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was arrested on 27 October on charges of attempted murder and the illegal possession of arms. He is accused of wounding his neighbour Davit Bajelidze.

The defendant denies the charges. His lawyer says Gamsakhurdia did not have a gun with him, nor was a gun found at the scene of the incident.
