Fuks and Frenkel have thorns2011-12-06 21:32
All things come to an end one day. Two Israeli businessmen, Roni Fuks and Zeev Frenkel, who were almost done in in a Georgian prison, have been released and sent back home. Mikheil Saakashvili that boasted of his regime's non-partiality all year through has signed a decree to grant pardon to the entrepreneurs. The demonstrative punishment has ended with Georgia's complete and irrevocable diplomatic capitulation.
Presently, Mikheil Saakashvili's press service is applying all efforts to prevent their employer from total discrediting. The mercy is presented as generosity of the Georgian leader. As reported, he answered desperate calls of Israel's government and president and, knowing that both prisoners are in bad health, decided to set Fuks and Frenkel free. Nobody knows what this unpleasant situation could end with for Tbilisi in case of deaths of two honest men willing to reinforce economic potential of the Caucasian republic. It's not a secret that the prisoners were ill treated. Because of failure to have medicines on time, Zeev Frenkel suffered a heart attack right on the prison bed.
Still, only due to a diplomatic scandal that flared up immediately after the businessmen were condemned to long prison terms, destructive energy of Georgian authorities was redirected right. As we know, not long ago Vera Kobalia, Georgia's ministry of economy, went to Israel and returned with a promise of new huge investments in the Caucasian republic. However, the money supposed to reinforce and develop trade and economic cooperation between two states, has gradually slowed down. The signal was more than evident, but Mikheil Saakashvili decided to take time and pretend to have control of two prisoners failing to be the master of the world.
It is unknown what the leader of Georgia was thinking of when he made this fateful decision. It is unwise to risk relationships with the only serious ally near at hand. Abkhazia, that official Tbilisi still wants to return to its fold, has already entered into a series of agreements with Israeli government. Yet, three years ago Israelites were pleasing Georgian militaries at the time of the anti-terrorist center training sessions. Thus, Tel Aviv's tenderness toward "secessionists" is almost equal to Russia's recognition of Sukhum's and Tskhinval's independence. A real low blow.
That is why the Georgian leadership flew off the handle remaining deaf to first calls of Israeli authorities. Besides, representatives of Georgia's penitentiary system were convincing the society that fair laws of the Caucasian republic can't be violated even by money bags. It seems, poor Fuks and Frenkel offered too little but when this bribe was revealed, only Tbilisi managed to take advantage of it in full. That is why even the court of appeal that studied the case of the Israelites, reconfirmed validity of the verdict. There is no such a need in money to ruin reputation of officials - crystal clear like a baby's teardrop. After all, they work in glass buildings for anyone to see them doing good to the country.
Now these businessmen are finally home. What made Mikheil Saakashvili change his mind? Naturally, supporters of the Georgian regime say that the leader of Georgia did it on compassionate grounds. This gesture has already been defined as reinforcement of "long-centuries friendship between Georgian and Jewish nations and warm relationships between them".
