Arrest of Gela Khvedelidze - just beginning?2013-05-14 17:20
Not much time has passed after the resignation of the Minister of Ivanishvili's government - Minister of Agriculture Kirvalidze, and the arrest of a senior Interior Ministry official takes place. We are talking about the first Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Gela Khvedelidze. Why have the Prime Minister Ivanishvili and Interior Minister Garibashvili decided to sacrifice this figure, and what is the relationship between the former deputy head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Deputy Minister of Justice Nika Natvlishvili and advisor to the Prime Minister Gia Khuhashvili?
Gela Khvedelidze became the first high-ranking official in the government of Ivanishvili who was arrested. Former Deputy Interior Minister is charged with illegal distribution of information about the private lives of the citizens.
Information about the detention of Khvedelidze was voiced by the Interior Minister Irakli Garibashvili at a special press conference. According to him, video of the personal life of the journalist George Paresishvili was filmed about a year ago when the Minister of Internal Affairs was Vano Merabishvili. The video was to blackmail Paresishvili, put him under psychological pressure and make him work for the staff of the Constitutional Security Department of the Georgian Interior Ministry.
"These and other materials were illegally collected by the former leadership of the Interior Ministry and were kept in a special place. Gela Khvedelidze along with other members of the Interior Ministry was in charge of their safety. There has happened a very unpleasant fact - Khvedelidze committed not only a crime, but also the action unworthy of MIA officer. He acted inappropriately after the spread of information in the media discrediting him and made decision to distribute these materials on the Internet in order to revenge," the head of the Interior Ministry said at a press conference. He noted that any violator of the law, regardless of his position, must be punished.
Khvedelidze himself admits his guilt and says that he is ready to cooperate with the investigation. If his guilt is proved Garibashvili's former deputy faces either a fine or imprisonment.
The Interior Minister also said they have already made a decision consistent with the Prosecutor's Office of Georgia that all the materials stored in the archives of the Interior Ministry and obtained by unlawful means must be immediately destroyed. At the same time, Irakli Garibashvili does not rule out that the members of the "National Movement" may have a copy of these materials.
Statement by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia clearly annoyed the President Saakashvili. Through the head of his administration Andro Barnov he said that the Georgian government accused the UNM of illegal collection and distribution of these materials without any evidence. "Due to the active efforts of the Georgian society and the "United National Movement" the Premiere had to make this sacrifice," said the head of the presidential administration. "We have a reasonable suspicion that the Prime Minister Ivanishvili has sacrificed less important official in order to hide the guilt of the larger figures," said Barnov.
