Georgian judokai arrested in Poland

Warsaw police arrested three members of the Georgian Youth Judo Team, who were in Poland to participate in judo’s European Championship, on September 13.

Russian news agencies report that the judokai were arrested for raping a 28-year-old woman. Reportedly the woman, who went to the police two days after the incident, has changed her testimony several times. The Georgian team maintains the arrest is an unwarranted provocation.

The arrested sportsmen will be represented by a public defender until Georgian lawyers arrive in Warsaw.
