MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - Hungary’s police have detained one of Georgia’s gang leaders and “a thief in law” Merab Dzhangveladze nicknamed as Merab Sukhumi.
Police arrested him in a hotel of Budapest on suspicion of committing murder on the territory of Italy, Russia’s Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
Italian police’s suspicion fell on members of the gang dubbed as Kutaisi - ethnic Georgians - after a range of grave crimes was committed in Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, the Czech Republic and Lithuania, the ministry said.
As previously reported, in June 2013 Europol on Italy's request held a special operation against members of the Dzhangveladze clan. 18 members of the gang were arrested at the same time in several European countries. Press claimed that among the detainees were 13 thieves in law. The reason for the arrest was the investigation of the murder of a businessman in Bari, Italy, Revaz Churadze. Churadze controlled the company Geotransit ltd. based in Italy, which was engaged in commercial transportation of cargo to Georgia. It is reported that this company was a competitor for the company, which was controlled by Dzhangveladze.
