16 persons detained in connection with release of secret recordings
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, 16 persons have been detained in connection with the release of secret recordings. "The investigation found that the detainees had been massively keeping and spreading the video recordings showing private life via social networks and mobile internet applications.

We would like to remind the public that illegal possession and distribution of materials showing personal life is a crime. Both possession in any form and release of such recordings (including via mobile application) leads to
imprisonment between 4 and 8 years.

We call on the public not to get engaged in criminal activities and stop spreading any similar videos. Otherwise, the law enforcement agencies will take measures envisaged by law.

The investigation continues to identify other people involved in the spread of videos showing private life.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs will be obliged to carry out the measures envisaged by the Georgian legislation against any person who deliberately or otherwise distributed materials showing private life,"- a spokesperson for the Ministry said.

Eka Beselia, a member of the ruling Georgian Dream party, recently became the target of what she called a "moral terror". According to Beselia, illegal footage showing her private life and family secrets, recorded during Saakashvili's regime, have been spread in the social network. Beselia said that she was the author of the legislative amendments submitted to the previous parliament to tighten similar offense in order to protect people from moral terror.

"Reports of illegal recordings coincided with my open conflict with the judicial group - I have the right to have an inner feeling, doubt," - said MP Eka Beselia. She called on the minister of the internal affairs, Giorgi Gakharia, the main prosecutor Shalva Tadumadze and the head of the state security service Vakhtang Gomelauri to timely investigate the case.
