Bank of Georgia (BOG) issued a new announcement on Zugdidi events taking place yesterday in one of the branches of the bank, stating: “Every staff, customer or the police officer involved in yesterday’s events is now safe and healthy. We will find the way to place life of each of them on track again” – BOG stated.
The attacker, armed with firearms and hand-grenades and dressed in military uniform, broke into the Bank of Georgia building in Zugdidi yesterday, taking both, bank staff and customers, hostage. The attacker demanded USD 500,000 and safe passage.
