Georgia Collects Its History
A small gathering of Georgians and Harvardians at Houghton Library last fall watched as President Neil L. Rudenstine symbolically gave back to a delegation of officials from the Republic of Georgia 82 cartons of that nation’s historical state documents that the University had held since 1974. Most of the Harvardians on hand–librarians, scholars, and administrators–sipped their champagne and balanced tea sandwiches on napkins of Georgia’s red, black, and white with the benign smiles of people who find themselves present at somebody else’s great event. For the Georgians, the occasion was powerful.

Opposition party leader killed in Georgia
Leader of 21st Century – Language, Homeland, Faith opposition party Guram Sharadze, 66, was killed last night in central Tbilisi, Georgia, a REGNUM correspondent informs.
Guram Sharadze was supposedly shot five times in front of Aldagi Company office. Under preliminary reports, Giorgi Barateli, born in 1977, suspected in killing Sharadze was detained shortly after the attack and confessed in the murder. He was reportedly wounded during the arrest, as he showed resistance to police forces. He was hospitalized.
As son-in-law of Guram Sharadze told reporters, Giorgi Barateli had been under Sharadze’s tutelage for several years. He was an orphan, and after Guram Sharadze started taking care of him, Barateli lived in his house and then was sent to Switzerland. “Giorgi committed a crime there and did not want to return to Georgia. They got him out of the pawn and brought back here. After that he took offence at Guram Sharadze and they had no relations in recent years,” Sharadze’s son-in-law told reporters.
Police started investigation, witnesses are interrogated. Supposedly, there is a video footage of the incident shot by CCTV camera at Aldagi office.

Three Versions of Political Assassination of Guram Sharadze
On July 20 it will be two months after famous politician, academician, writer and public man Guram Sharadze was assassinated. However, his family members were not interrogated yet. His lawyer is ignored and cannot interfere in the investigation process. The family does not cooperate with law enforcers and does not hope the investigation will be impartial. Relatives of Sharadzes are sure that the assassination of Guram Sharadze will be one more case in addition to those which are pretended to be investigated through.
Numerous Witnesses of Guram Sharadze’s Murder: What Does the “Edited” Video Actually Show?
Almost one year has already passed since Guram Sharadze, famous Georgian Scientist, was brutally murdered in Tbilisi. The case has been investigated and the responsible person caught and sentenced. However, is the right person spending hard time or has someone been set up to take a fall for a crime he did not commit. The convicted murder is not considered as being guilty by the family of Guram Sharadze. They consider that an innocent person is behind bars. Rusudan Sharadze, the daughter of Guram Sharadze, cannot believe that her father was murdered by Giorgi Barateli. This begs many questions: What has Rusudan Sharadze found out since the death of her father? What do scores and scores of witnesses and video-recorded footage reveal about the murder? The Human Rights Center has interviewed Rusudan Sharadze.

Attorneys of Guram Sharadze’s family are preparing appeal to Strasbourg Court. Before the Supreme Court, district and appeal courts were discussing the murder case.
