Bringing to justice for scandal around the Georgian special services

2009-11-17 23:42

4594.jpegThe person suspected of a leakage of information about an unsuccessful provocative act made by the Georgian special services is facing a legal procedure. The point at issue is the staged shooting at Lekh Kachinski and Mikhail Saakashvili near the border of South Ossetia last November. The Prosecutor's Office believes that the secret information was disclosed to the media by former Head of the Polish President's Administration Peter Kovnatski (see photo).

Kovnatski was dismissed in July when he took the liberty of criticizing the president of Poland for his chaotic government of the state.


Not long before the resignation, the head of the presidential administration made a statement for newspaper Dziennik that he has got a lot of claims to his chief. "I totally disagree with Lekh Kachinski's practice of acting without any plan", - he said. The press also estimated such liberties as a sufficient reason for resignation. At first, the president's administration tried to turn Kovnatski's words into a joke; however, he was fired in the course of time.

On November 26, he was summoned for questioning as a suspect. Kovnatski is going to be turned into a "scapegoat" for the stupid situation, which Lekh Kachinski and his friend Mikhail Saakashvili got in last November. The presidents went on a voyage to the borders of South Ossetia where they came under firing, which was called "an assassination attempt" against Kachinski.

The head of Poland stated that he heard submachine gun bursts 30 meters away. He expressed his indignation at the incident and called upon European Union to "stop the reviving (Russian) imperialism".

However, the action aimed at discrediting the Ossetians and the Russian servicemen protecting the borders of South Ossetia was disrupted by a report made by the Polish special services that disclosed the provocative actions of their Georgian colleagues.

On the next day of the same November, Polish newspaper Dziennik published extracts from the document executed by the Internal Security Agency (ABW).

The reasons provided by special services speak of the fact that the shooting was arranged by the Georgian party. Firstly, the Georgian guards made no response to the first series of firing. Contrary to the VIP person protection rules, the person that was allegedly under threat was not even bent down to the ground.

The Polish presidents' bodyguards were prematurely left at the end of the procession, so that they could not see him, not to mention any defending. According to the report, the Poles even did not have any information on the coming visit to Akhalgori for it was added to the itinerary later on.

President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili who was photographed by the journalists at the moment of shooting looked "quite relaxed and was smiling".

The report provided by ABW specifies the fact that right before the incident, a bus with the journalists was allowed to the block post on the Georgian side so that they could shoot the "attack".

South Ossetia confirmed then that its military men tried to stop the procession solely by firing into the air. "Saakashvili is perfectly aware of it; that is why he looks so calm", - President of the republic Eduard Kokoity underlined. He also added that if Saakashvili had been frightened he would have run away just like he did in the presence of journalists in August".
