A Georgian boy was beaten to death in Turkey for stealing a jacket

Summary of Disinformation

A photo showing a dead man depicts the corpse of the Georgian boy who was beaten to death by Turkish men for stealing a jacket in Turkey.

Disproof

The photo actually depicts a Turkish citizen, who jumped from the 3rd floor of a hotel in Turkey. Myth Detector has the full debunk mythdetector.ge/en/node/749 and they believe it to be an attempt to stir up anti-Turkish sentiments in Georgia with the help of disinformation, something we have seen before euvsdisinfo.eu/mh17-disinformation-back-in-the-headlines/, www.stopfake.org/en/?s=autonomy.
