Court in Tskhinvali Upholds Annulment of Runoff Results
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Dec.'11 / 11:57

Supreme Court in breakaway South Ossetia upheld on Tuesday its earlier ruling annulling November 27 presidential runoff results.

An opposition candidate, Alla Jioyeva, who won the runoff, was requesting the Supreme Court to annul its earlier decision.

Meanwhile, at dawn on Tuesday an anti-tank rocket was fired at a home of the breakaway region’s chief prosecutor Taimuraz Khugaev, a close ally of incumbent South Ossetian leader Eduard Kokoity. The rocket, reportedly fired from RPG-26 rocket launcher, hit a second floor of a five-storey apartment building in Tskhinvali; no one was injured.

The breakaway region’s authorities linked the incident to ongoing events in Tskhinvali, involving opposition’s protest rallies.

“It was a well-planned provocation aimed at blowing up situation in South Ossetia,” Kokoity said.

Alla Jioyeva suggested that this “provocation” was staged by the authorities with a purpose “to discredit” the opposition.
