Jihad Video Scandal Is Over
One of the individuals, who released a video footage on behalf of Jihad is already imprisoned, as told to InterPressNews by Nino Giorgobiani, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. ”The case of the video released on behalf of Jihad has been closed. We identified who had committed the crime. The court sentenced him to custody. Further details will be provided on Thursday,” Giorgobiani said, adding that the case was closed long ago, although it was kept secret for the
sake of the investigation.
As for the statement made by the Defense Minister about the issue, Giorgobiani said it would have been better if the Minister had checked the information with the Interior Minister. 
Defense Minister Irakli Alasania said it was a pity that there was no progress in the investigation of the said case.
The video - Taliban Jihad against Georgian Troops in Afghanistan - was placed on YouTube on 6 June 2013 and contained threatening messages to the Georgian armed forces serving in the ISAF mission in Afghanistan.
The video showed Georgian soldiers injured and killed during the mission while the commentator claimed the same fate awaited all Georgians in Afghanistan, and called for a jihad against the Crusaders from the Caucasian state. 
Defense Minister Irakli Alasania congratulated the Ministry of Internal Affairs on the investigation of the case of the videos released on behalf of Jihad. Alasania told journalists that he hoped the Ministry would soon answer all questions of public with regard to the above-mentioned case.
”Everybody is glad that the case has been solved. I congratulate the Ministry of Internal Affairs on this. We all hoped that the truth would be found. I hope all questions will be soon answered. Namely, there are questions whether the crime was ordered by special services of foreign countries, whether it was aimed against Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration and whether it was a campaign against Georgian armed forces during the tragic period or not,” Alasania said.
