Babutsa Gordadze, 26, one of the 2 Georgian detained women in Malaysia, has been averted death penalty through 2-year consultations led regarding her case by the Georgian government. The Malaysian court ruled out 8 years imprisonment as the verdict into Gordadze's case.

Deputy Chief Prosecutor of Georgia headed the Georgian delegation, which arrived in Malaysia. Malaysian lawyer Reni Chami defended interests of the Georgian convict. The charge of drug trafficking was replaced by the charges of drugs keeping.

Darejan Kokhtashvili, another Georgian citizen detained in Malaysia has been already averted death penalty as well. She will serve 6 years in prison instead. As a result of negotiations led by Georgia's Chief Prosecutor's Office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs an agreement was reached with the Malaysian side.

Two Georgian citizens Darejan Kokhtashvili and Babutsa Gordadze were arrested by Malaysian law enforcers on October 25, 2010. They were found with a large amount of drugs in their luggage hidden in picture frames.

Gordadze's husband Eldar Davitiani took the charge of drug trafficking onto himself, and surrendered to the police. He had been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Gordadze's family members learned about the decision through TV. They thanked the Georgian President and government and hoped that the authorities would further help the family in extradition of the convict so that Gordadze served her prison term in Georgia.
