According to Kakha Abuashvili’s mother, Tsira Abuashvili, her son was undergoing healing therapy in France and he was planning to return to Georgia in September.

As Tsira Abuashvili noted, she learned about the incident from the TV.

“I heard about what happened from the TV, like all of you did. He was undergoing treatment there and wanted to continue the therapy. He was planning to return to Georgia in spring, but then changed his mind and decided to complete the therapy course and come back in September. I do not know what else to say. I think he lived together with his friends, who helped him to get through the difficult period in life and overcome his health problems. I suppose that he was detained due to his connection with Georgians involved in illegal activities,” the singer’s mother elaborated.
