A man and his wife living in the village of Khurvaleti, who were illegally detained by occupying forces two weeks ago near occupied Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) region, have been released.
Reportedly, they were released yesterday after a two-week quarantine aimed to prevent the coronavirus transmission in occupied Tskhinvali.
The family did not have to pay fine, imposed by the occupying forces for individuals who are detained for “illegally crossing the border”.
Malkhaz Vanishvili, 30, is the grandson of Davit Vanishvili, whose house and agricultural lands are divided in two by occupying forces for several years now.
As of now, Malkhaz stays with his grandfather in a plot of land behind the barbed wire fence, which cannot be crossed. Otherwise, he may be detained again.
