His Holiness,  Ilia II, Patriarch-Catholicos of Georgia had successful gall bladder surgery in Germany on Monday (exactly two weeks before him, I myself underwent this exact procedure).  While his surgery is reported to have been a success (as was mine), the Georgian Orthodox Church and government are in turmoil over an alleged plot to poison the Patriarch. Father Giorgi Mamaladze, head of the Georgian Orthodox Church's Property department was arrested at Tblisi airport with cyanide in his luggage before he could board a flight to Germany.  Father Giorgi Mamaladze also apparently manages a medical center in Georgia and had been expected to be on hand for the Patriarch's surgery and recovery.

Thankfully no one in my entourage tried to poison me after my gall bladder removal a week ago.

It's getting to be a bit like the Borgia's and the papacy with the Georgians, Russians and the Patriarchy in Tblisi.

It appears now that His Holiness was not the target of the plot after all, but rather it seems it was his assistant that was the desired victim.
