Jailed Ex-Police Official ‘Commits Suicide’

Davit Kekua, former chief of the criminal police in Tbilisi and ex-deputy of the Interior Ministry’s Inspection Unit, hanged himself in his cell in prison number 7 on October 25, a prison official said.

Davit Kekua, 43, held his position at the Inspection Unit until his arrest in May. He was charged with the fabrication of evidence and misuse of office and was still in pre-trial detention at the time of his death.

Although Kekua’s relatives have questioned the official version of events, prison officials said footage from CCTV cameras confirmed that the former police official had hanged himself.
