persons, killed as a result of special operation held in Lopota gorge have been
buried at Duisi cemetery. According to the locals, those persons were Chechen
refugees. Merab Kavtarashvili, the authorized
person of Duisi municipality stubbornly insists that deceased have been brought
from Austria and that they have no connection with Pankisi incident. According to the
locals, the Chechen refugees were buried at night and they got information
about the fact only on the second day. Kists from Pankisi as well as Chechen refugees
residing in Duisi village prefer to stay mute and make no comments regarding
the issue. No one speaks about the incident in Akhmet Chataev’s family as well.
“Everyone knows everything, however they stay mute” – Says one of the
inhabitants of Duisi village. The special operation held in Lopota Gorge ended
with burial of 4 Chechen refugees.
