Okruashvili VS Akhalaia: 1-02010-12-30 15:30
Irakli Okruashvili, once Saakashvili's closest teammate, now a bitter enemy, attacked Dato Akhalaia, head of Georgian Interior Ministry's constitutional security department, in Paris. Destiny gave the Georgian Party leader a chance to punish the "pillars" of Georgian regime outside Georgia. And he started right from the top since the Interior Ministry's department for constitutional security is very similar to Soviet NKVD of early 1930s.
As reported, leader of Georgian opposition Irakli Okruashvili was carrying his child to the restroom in Hayatt hotel in the center of Paris when he bumped into Dato Akhalaia, head of Interior Ministry's constitutional security department. One of the most influential security men of Georgia was in a group of people including deputy health minister Irakli Giorgobiani and one more man whose name was not mentioned in the press. All three were slightly drunk.
The conflict started with Akhalaia helloing Okruashvili and telling him something. As the Georgian Party press service reported later, it was a verbal insult in the presence of the child. Hot-tempered Okruashvili didn't take it and rushed at the offender with fists.
The witnesses claim that the scuffle continued for a few minutes. Only after the hotel administration and security service intervened the fighting stopped. Okruashvili withdrew - in order to take his child away and get back to the offender. But he failed to find Akhalaia in the hotel.
Later it was informed that by that time one of the chiefs of Georgian Interior Ministry was in a Paris hospital with a number of injuries made by Okruashvili, a much stronger man, evidently.
The scandal will continue and is likely to have a negative effect on the reputation of some very important persons.
There are dark spots in this story. For instance, what kind of meeting in Hyatt hotel was it where former and current Georgian security officials could meet?
Dato Akhalaia is indeed one of the most influential persons in Georgia. He is the closest ally of omnipotent Vano Merabishvili, Interior Minister, and there are people in Tbilisi who think that Merabishvili is more powerful than Saakashvili is.
Akhalaia is a brother of Bacho Akhalaia, Defense Minister. And the Interior Ministry's constitutional security department is the new form of security services whose officers put pressure on businessmen in disgrace, kidnap people from Abkhazia and write scenarios for Georgia's spy scandals.
Dato Akhalaia was affected not only physically in the fight. In fact, the incident can jeopardize his career prospects. Now the Interior Ministry is undergoing reorganization and Akhalaia's positions can be significantly solidified as a result. As persistently rumored, part of the Interior Ministry will be reorganized into the security ministry that will comprise the constitutional security department, counterintelligence service and counterterrorist center to be led by current Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili. The Interior Ministry will retain investigation and criminal departments with Dato Akhalaia, current head of the constitutional security department, to take charge of them.
According to available information, Akhalaia has successfully completed a special training course in the United States. This information is confirmed by his colleagues - unofficially so far.
