Issues of the missing do not leave the agenda - Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy of South Ossetia


Parents of the missing citizens of South Ossetia have been waiting for information about their children every day for 13 years, but there is no news of them, said Presidential Envoy for post-conflict settlement Murat Dzhioev.

“We raise the issue of missing citizens of South Ossetia at the meetings in the IPRM format and during the Geneva discussions. At the next round in Geneva, the OSCE representatives said that the Georgian authorities had allegedly promised to assist in clarifying this issue, ”the Plenipotentiary said.

He has noted that for 13 years there is no any information about the fate of the missing young people.

“At the same time, several reports, which were prepared from 2010 to 2015, confirm that five of these six people, who were listed missing since 2008, were in the hands of the Georgian security forces. Accordingly, their traces should be sought on the territory of this state,” the Plenipotentiary stressed.

Over 130 citizens of South Ossetia are listed missing during the years of the Georgian aggression from 1989 to 2008, seven people went missing in 2008. The youngest among the missing in August 2008 is Alan Khugaev, who at that time was 17 years old.
