According to Vakho Sanaia, “everything was falsified so repeated investigation is necessary. We will appeal to the Prosecutor’s Office. Our family will do its best to help the investigation to find out the real truth; who and why ordered the given political murder. Who were participants, “customers”, assistants and etc.”
Vakho Sanaia stressed that family members know a lot more than the society knows in general. Considering this the family will do everything possible to help and support the investigation.
