Bidzina Ivanishvili stated that the investigation of the death of Zviad Gamsakhurdia should come to the end.

Formally, everything is right. But we have seen this film many times ... The "Georgian Dream" has been in power for 7 years, chief prosecutors have several times been replaced during this period, but the investigation has not been progressed. Our family has to hold public protests, street rallies, the hunger strike at the chief prosecutor's office, and still there is no adequate communication with the Prosecutor's Office. Did Bidzina Ivanishvili not hear anything about it? If not, it means that he has not been even interested in it.

That is why we have no reason to believe anybody's promises today. If Bidzina Ivanishvili or his government wants to do something, the ball is in their court. We believe just in our own eyes, " reads the statement of Tsotne and Konstantine Gamsakhurdias.
