Bokeria: the Attack can be Defined as a Terrorist Act

Of course an assassination attempt against a politician in a crowded place where others might also die can be defined as an act of terrorism. Naturally, an assassination attempt isn’t outwith the realms of possibility. Unlike in other cases when [the government] started the investigation believing it to be a suicide attempt [case of Erosi Kitsmarishvili] - we did not see the same approach here. however, I’m not a legal expert so cannot assess so quickly whether one definition or the other is better, but we do have grounds to define this a terrorist act.
