Former head of Georgia’s anti-terrorism center arrested in Lithuania


Lithuanian border guards apprehended Maisuradze at Vilnius Airport last Saturday after he arrived from Kiev to the Lithuanian capital.

“There was such an arrest,” Giedrius Misutis, spokesman for the Lithuanian State Border Guard Service, told BNS on Tuesday.

According to the news website, Russia initiated the international search for Maisuradze on the grounds that he is suspected of terrorism-related crimes. A Vilnius court on Sunday issued a 10-day arrest warrant for the man, pending a decision on his extradition.
