The Moscow Region investigating bodies of the Russia’s Investigative Committee have charged Shota Alizbarashvili with complicity in killing three people and illegal circulation of firearms (part 5 of article 33, paragraph “a” of part 2 of article 105, part 1 of article 222 of the RF Penal Code).
According to investigators, on 19 October 2015, Elizbarashvili brought Amiran Georgadze to the crime scene, the building of Krasnogorsk District Administration. After that he took from the car’s trunk a bag with guns, brought it to the office of the First Deputy Head of Krasnogorsk District Yuri Karaulov and gave to Georgadze. After Georgadze committed the double killing, Elizbarashvili took the bag back to the car and brought Georgadze to the second crime scene, a mansion in the village of Posdnyakovo. The suspect knew that Georgadze had appointed a meeting there with his business partner Tristan Zakaidze. Later the suspect also took the bag with guns into the house and gave it to Georgadze and after the murder took it back to the car.
It has to be noted that when the men started arguing in the office of the first deputy head of the district administration, Georgadze gave his cell phone to Elizbarashvili so that he could make a video.
After the murder of his business partner, Georgadze told Elizbarashvili to take him to the village of Timoshino. There Georgadze left the car and sat down by the road. At that moment, a man was going by in his car, saw Georgadze on the ground and stopped to offer him help, thinking that the man was unwell, but Georgadze shot at the man several times. And that was when Elizbarashvili ran away from his boss.
Following the request of investigators, a court has ruled to place Georgadze in custody pending trial.
At present investigative operations are continued to find out all the circumstances of the crime and document the evidence. The investigation is ongoing.
