Radioactive Substance Seized on Georgian-Armenian Border

The State Security Service of Georgia has detained an Armenian citizen attempting to smuggle a radioactive substance Thorium, packed in four packages, to Russia via the Sadakhlo border-crossing point between Georgia and Armenia.

In a statement released on July 15, the State Security Service noted that the total weight of the packages was 71.63 kg and they contained radioactive isotope Thorium 232, which belongs to the category of nuclear materials. The Tbilisi City Court has already sentenced the Armenian citizen to pretrial custody.

The investigation has been launched under articles 230 and 214 of the criminal code of Georgia, involving illegal handling and transportation of radioactive substances and punished by imprisonment for a term of five to ten years.
