UPDATE: Last year on 15 October 2012, Vazgen Soghoyan explained on freetheworldchamp.com what happened in this case:
” Finaly. I had a chance to talk to our friend Roman Tsindeliani today. It was long time that I couldn’t get in contact with Him. He told me that He is in good health, even gained a little weight, He trains at jail gym, feeling normal. About the status of His case; Russian Authorities decided to send Him to Georgia. Roman agreed with that decision and He is confident that in Georgia He has more chances to prove His innocence in place. He can prove that He is not that person who was involved in that crime. Recently there were Georgian parliament elections and a new Team came to the power in Georgia. Roman thinks that new Georgian Authorities are trustful, positive and He hopes on a true Justice. The previous Authorities was fighting with Russia and prosecuting all those Georgians who were connected with Russia in any way. As You know, Roman is a Georgian who represents Team Russia. He also said that everybody including Russian Armsport Assoc. President, Officials, Friends worldwide continue to help and support Him and His Family in such hard situation. Roman asked Me to THANK all those Who pray and support Him. He was talking positive, a confident voice, We were joking about some other things in Life. This situation reminded Us the famous Soviet movie “Mimino” where 2 men ( a Georgian and an Armenian) meet each other in a big city and the Georgian gets into a trouble, jail, court, freed, and all this time the Armenian was trying to help Him. Let’s wish Him All Good Luck and Freedom Soon! ”
