"All those involved in the attempt to assassinate Shevardnadze who were convicted are at large now," Khaburdzania said in an interview with the independent MZE company. "Who knows? Maybe the same lies in store for Giorgadze," he added.
The Georgian side, he said, raised the question of detaining and extraditing Giorgadze suspected by the Georgian authorities of having organized an attempt on Shevardnadze's life and regarded in Georgia as terrorist number one.
"According to available information, Giorgadze is not in Russia at present. He is in one of Russia's neighboring states," Khaburdzania said.
After the 1995 attempt on Shevardnadze's life, Igor Giorgadze left Georgia, and the then Georgian authorities put him on an international wanted list.
