Opposition threatens to sue Saakashvili again

4529.jpegGeorgians are an artistic and inventive nation. This is hard to deny. But now this creative potential is not really in great demand. Creativity goes to politics where competition is high. Sometimes Europe and the USA are literally shocked by the "creativity" of Georgian politicians. Recently the Labor Party called on the UN to investigate the activities of the country's leader Mikheil Nikolayevich. GeorgiaTimes correspondent was trying to understand how real it is.


Right before the departure to Washington the leader of Georgia's Labor Party Shalva Natelashvili informed the journalists in the airport about his plans to meet with representatives of political and economic spheres of the USA and UN people without specifying the names and saying half-jokingly that "if I tell you that Mikheil Saakashvili will leave all his work and rush to the USA to frustrate the meetings".

Obviously the meetings were not frustrated. At least journalists did not report on that. And at the meetings in the UN Shalva Natelashvili urged the UN to summon an ad-hoc commission to investigate the activities of President Mikheil Saakashvili. "The UN must examine criminal activities of Saakashvili regime, especially after his repeated violations of the UN Charter", - Natelashvili is quoted by VZGLYAD with reference to Alia newspaper (Georgia).

Besides, according to the chief laborist of Georgia "90 per cent of political parties and people of Georgia call the UN to take control of the coming parliamentary and presidential election". As Shalva Natelashvili is convinced, otherwise Georgia is doomed for permanent coups and will never have peaceful transfer of power.

Remarkably, Natelashvili is particularly keen on litigations, it seems. Earlier, On November 3, he called the Georgian authorities to file a lawsuit to the International Court of Justice against Russia.

Then the Labor party leader stated that "on December 1 the examination of Serbia's claim against Kosovo's recognition will begin. The claim was supported by Spain, Romania and Greece".

Natelashvili called President Mikheil Saakashvili to immediately attach Georgia to Serbia's claim and submit a similar claim to the International Court of Justice against Russia.

Mikheil Nikolayevich did not follow the advice of his opponents. Besides it would look silly after publication of the report by the International Independent commission investigating into the causes of the August events stating that Georgia was the initiator of the hostilities in South Ossetia in August 2008.

By the way right after the promulgation of Heidi Tagliavini's report the Labor party insisted on  suing Saakashvili in the Hague tribunal. The Labor Party's foreign secretary Nestan Kirtadze stated recently that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili must be acknowledged as a war criminal and brought to justice in the Hague tribunal on the basis of the EU independent commission's statement.

But it was another opposition figure that rose to defend Mikheil Nikolayevich. Mamuka Giorgadze of the People's Party believes "in future this will be paid for" by the coming generations. 

"Saakashvili has nothing to do with that. The question is what Tagliavini's report and its conclusions will have for our next generations. Why are they happy that Saakashvili may stand trial in the Hague tribunal?"

"Milošević appeared before the tribunal and Yugoslavia split up since these are interconnected processes", - People's Party leader says.
