Georgian Opposition Leader’s Husband May Return Under Amnesty

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Badri Bitsadze, the husband of opposition leader Nino Burjanadze, may return to Georgia from exile as part of an amnesty bill, Bakur Bakuradze, a spokesman for Burjanadze, said today by phone from the capital, Tbilisi.

Bitsadze, whose whereabouts are unknown, was sentenced in 2012 to 5 1/2 in prison for organizing disobedience against police, charges he denies. Georgia freed this month 190 political prisoners who’d been jailed under the previous administration as part of an amnesty that also envisages the return of 25 political exiles.
