Ivanishvili needs a third force?2013-04-16 13:43
During a meeting with reporters last week, Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili spoke about the necessity of a third political force on the political arena of the country and cited the example of certain people. Among them he called the name of Irma Inashvili - the head of Media Union "Objective." Her name became known after the spread of scandalous shots of torture of prisoners in Gldani prison. Irma Inashvili widely publicized the "history with the brooms" right before the parliamentary election. Who is Irma Inashvili, and what kind of alternative political force the leader of the "Georgian Dream" says about?
Being ardent opponent of Saakashvili's regime, Irma Inashvili was originally aimed at criticizing the president and his team in her journalistic work. Working at the First public television channel, she devoted many reports and articles to expose the hated regime. They were mostly about Mikheil Saakashvili and Vano Merabishvili. Eventually, she was fired.
After that she got funding from a certain Davit Tarkhan Mouravi and created a media alliance, known as the "Objective." This was the beginning of a new phase of the struggle with the Saakashvili regime in the country. Irma is actively involved in rallies and protests against the authorities and against the activities of the First channel. Then she makes a material about the "corrupt journalists" channel "Imedi". Known fact, when in 2008 the authorities seized the "Imedi", owned at the time by Badri Patarkatsishvili, after which the channel became one of the mouthpieces of power. Then some reporters, after getting a salary from the former owner Patarkatsishvili, began actively supporting Saakashvili. Inashvili wrote that they pursued only own benefit, having no principles, decency and dignity.
It should be emphasized that Irma Inashvili has good connections abroad with Georgian emigrants. Arranging regular protests against the government, she attracted emigrants, printed information and distributed it abroad, including in Strasbourg. The case of Buta Robakidze, killed by the police patrol, also received a response in Europe thanks to Inashvili's efforts.
One of recent high-profile cases is the story of torture in Gldani prison. She has published a report, using connections in Strasbourg. By the way, her brother, Kote Inashvili, also sat in this very prison. Perhaps, she became aware of the existence of tortures in prisons from him.
Irma Inashvili can be called an orthodox Christian. She lives by the law "Love your neighbor as yourself." She is seeking to politics not for the power itself or the money, but because of the opportunities to do more for the country. She's a kind of Don Quixote in a skirt. She may seem a little crazy. However, people who know her well say that she is a good and well-educated woman. But, as one cameraman working with her said, she is person with a "thieves mentality." However, when I tried to learn what he means by thieves mentality, he said: "Well, for example, she hates gays and lesbians."
Previous government, which can be hardly called loyal to the opposition thinking and opponents, underestimated her capabilities and forces. She has never been considered a serious force worth to fear of. For this reason she remained "unpunished." Someone was to shout in order to make impression of democracy in the country, so she was allowed to do that.
