“Under the international law, all heads of state, current and former, including Mikheil Saakashvili, have lifelong immunity from foreign criminal jurisdiction. Thus, it is not under the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation's law enforcement authorities, unlike international courts and courts of his country, to indict Saakashvili,” Markin told ITAR-TASS.
The official said that the Investigative Committee intended to bring to justice a number of other Georgian senior officials involved in the events in South Ossetia in 2008.As was earlier reported, Markin said the Investigative Committee did not rule out it might put on the international wanted list Georgia’s Former President Saakashvili and several high-ranking officials who were responsible for the events in South Ossetia in 2008.
Investigators had information that Georgia’s top-ranking officials, including President Saakashvili, Defense Minister Kezerashvili, Interior Minister Merabishvili and others, had the aim of complete elimination of Ossetians living in the territory of South Ossetia, Markin said, adding that earlier those people had international immunity from criminal charges.
“As the president and government in Georgia have changed, the persons involved in the crimes in the territory of South Ossetia have lost their positions, and the Investigative Committee is considering bringing charges against them and putting them on the international wanted list,” he said.
