Renegade General Arrested
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 May.'04 / 14:55

Former commander of the Batumi-based 25th Brigade of the Georgian Armed Forces Maj. Gen. Roman Dumbadze, who pledged loyalty to Aslan Abashidze and refused to obey the country’s central authorities, was arrested in Batumi.

He is interrogated in the Georgian Security Ministry in Tbilisi on May 6.

The Georgian General Prosecutor’s Office brought criminal charges against Dumbadze and accused him of treason in April, during the standoff between the Adjaria’s ex-leader Aslan Abashidze and country’s central authorities.

However, most of the officers and soldiers serving in the 25th Brigade defected mutineer commander and arrived in Tbilisi to pledge loyalty to President Saakashvili.

Maj. Gen. Dumbadze was arrested after Aslan Abashidze fled to Russia. Other details of arrest are not reported.
