Americans to reeducate Sakartvelo’s intelligence service

2011-02-03 16:25

13069.jpegGeorgian leader Mikheil Saakashvili is eccentric as usual. He has invented a fantastic way of punishing his compatriots who are at fault. Gela Bezhuashvili, head of the intelligence service, with whom the president is not totally satisfied, has been given - not the sack - but a chance of improving qualification in the USA. One of Georgia's most influential politicians has one month and a half to reconsider his behavior. Bezhuashvili looks disgraced: there is no worse punishment for the country's number one secret agent than going to "upgrade his professional level". And the president is as determined as ever.


As time goes by Saakashvili is becoming more cautious and far-sighted. The Georgian leader has a rich history of political "break-ups". Once, he fell out with Okruashvili, Alasania and many other politicians for minor differences. Everyone knows how things went out. Two overly influential figures in Georgia's opposition are breathing down the president's back ready to unseat him any time using all available methods.

Bezhuashvili is one of the last loyal teammates of the president, one of the pillars of his inner circle. The decision to send the intelligence chief to school, not on pension, was Saakashvili's forced measure. Bezhuashvili used to be minister of foreign affairs and minister of defense. He has no political differences with the Georgian leader. This is an echo of Tkibuli mine explosion that resulted in one death.

When the explosion struck, the head of the state was in Yerevan demanding in rage that the culprits be punished. He said he was given a statement under which the dead miner was personally responsible for the accident. "The similar statement was made in the aftermath of previous explosions where all the blame was shifted onto the miners. The general prosecutor's office investigated into the case and confirmed that the previous explosion had been caused by criminal acts of mine managers, not out of negligence of several miners, now dead. The managers of the mine deactivated the ventilation system to save their money at the account of lives of their employees. And the supervision body wrote a statement to please the mine manager and the owner of the business in one-hand-washes-the-other style", - the president underlined.

Please, note Saakashvili's last phrase. His mention of the business owner was not incidental. These two words reveal the intrigue around Bezhuashvili. The business owner is the country's biggest industrial holding "Industrial Group" that embraces Tkibuli mines, Chiatura Marganets, cement plants and even mass media. The main holding owner is David Bezhuashvili - brother of the chief of the intelligence service. He is also a National Movement deputy, works a lot in foreign policy in Kazakh direction and as they say protects all Kazakh investments in the country. According to Georgian Times newspaper, David Bezhuashvili is ranked 20th in the list of the planet's richest Georgians with a USD 600 mln fortune. It is clear that Gela Bezhuashvili is not a poor politician scrounging off his brother. It is absolutely evident that the country's number one secret agent takes an active part in the family business.
