Body of Georgian citizen who died in Tskhinval to be given to family this week - PM Kvirikashvili

TBILISI. March 6 (Interfax) - The body of Georgian citizen Archil Tatunashvili, who died in custody in Tskhinval on February 23, will be handed over to his family by the end of this week, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said at a government meeting on Tuesday.

"I will no longer be commenting on the transfer of Archil Tatunashvili's body. Much has already been said. I'll just add that our friends involved in these communications confirm that the body will be transported no later than the end of this week," Kvirikashvili said.

He also said that the other two Georgian citizens detained together with Tatunashvili in South Ossetia on February 22, Levan Kutashvili and Ioseb Pavliashvili, might soon return home.
