The so-called prosecutor general of Georgia’s Russia-occupied Tskhinvali region Uruzmag Dzhagaev has announced the conditions upon which he will resign following protests sparked by the death of 28-year-old local resident Inal Dzhabiev while in police custody.
Dzhagaev says he will resign if the so-called MPs who led the protest rallies in the region following the death of the 28-year-old will also resign.
Members of parliament and politicians from opposition parties use the tragic death of Inal Dzhabiev for their self-interests and put pressure on law enforcement agencies in order to paralyze their legal activities”, said Dzhagaev.
Inal Dzhabiev died on August 28 while being transported from a pretrial detention facility to a hospital after allegedly being tortured. This has caused widespread tension in the occupied Tskhinvali region.
Dzhabiev was detained for his alleged involvement in an attack on the region’s de facto interior minister Igor Naniev.
The region’s de facto leader Anatoly Bibilov dismissed the region’s ‘government’ after ‘prime minister’ Erik Pukhaev announced his resignation.
Bibilov said that lack of professionalism of law enforcers caused the tragic death of the 28-year-old man.
