Georgia prime minister found dead
Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania has been found dead in an apartment in Tbilisi, apparently poisoned by gas.
Officials say security guards found Zhvania's body after breaking down the doors of a flat owned by his friends several hours after he arrived there.
Zhvania was once an ally of former President Eduard Shevardnadze.
But he turned against Mr Shevardnadze and played a prominent role in the 2003 Rose Revolution which swept him from power in a wave of popular protest.
Apparent Gas Leak Kills Georgian Premier
TBILISI, (AP) -- Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania was killed early Thursday by an apparent gas leak while at a friend's house, the ex-Soviet republic's interior minister said.
Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili said in a live broadcast on Rustavi-2 television that security guards broke through a window when they heard no sign of life inside the friend's home several hours after the prime minister arrived.
Zhvania had arrived at the home at about midnight Wednesday, and the guards entered the apartment between 4 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., he said.
The friend was also killed, Merabishvili said.
"It is an accident," Merabishvili said. "We can say that poisoning by gas took place."
A longtime politician born in 1963, Zhvania was part of the opposition to former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze and played a role in protests that prompted led to Shevardnadze's ouster after against allegedly fraudulent elections in November 2003.
President Mikhail Saakashvili, who led the protests, named Zhvania prime minister following his landslide election in January 2004.
Ever been to Tiblisi? They use garden hoses for gas hook ups.
LOL Babblefish does it again ;)
Gee, ya think? ;)
I, on the other hand, don't understand the suspicion surrounding a plain old ordinary death by poison gas!
Must be the area. They do the same thing in Atlanta.
NOOO POOR BARNEYYYYY POOR DUBYA
Actually I wonder if KGB agent like animals I hear Vlad has some of pets like Horse and couple of dogs I hear from stories I read
This is strange this is too weird lure by friends to his death
The prime minister of Georgia Zurab Zhvanija
The prime minister of Georgia Zurab Zhvanija was lost. Minister of police and public safety Vano Merabishvili informed about it.
The body of the prime minister was revealed in an apartment of his friend. And his friend also is found by the victim.
According to the minister, the last night Z.Zhvanija has come on a visit to the friend - to the assistant to the governor of one of regions of Georgia. After a while protection of the prime minister has begun to worry, as it did not answer bells. At 4:30 on local time security guards have broken open a window and have found out Z.Zhvanija's bodies and his friend.
Under the preliminary version, there was an accident - the death has come as a result of a poisoning with gas.
We shall remind, Z.Zhvanija has been appointed by the prime minister in M.Saakashvili's government on February, 14 2004a. During board of the previous president of Georgia, Edward Shevardnadze, Zurab Zhvanija held a post of the speaker of the Georgian parliament.
It also might be relevant to mention that Shevardnadze or his loyalists are every bit as likely the culprits in the Russians if foul play is involved, which has yet to be determined. Could also be the Chechens angry over proposed Pankisi Gorge activities, but it doesn't seem brutal enough for their taste ...
Hey Hal one of the Freepers made good comment to me at Canteen in the states we have strong sense of warning about Gas leak I wonder if this guy was knock unconsicous he couldn't smell the gas
Could also be anti-Putin forces who want to make it look like a Putin hit. The only way to solve the mess is to walk back the cat.
MAN what going on with Republic of Georgia that country so backward LOL!
Could have something to do with the leak of Putin being behind the Beslan murders.
