Corruption in Ecology Ministry continued
Georgia is still one of the most corruption-free states in former USSR. This time the Ministry for environmental protection and natural resources was called for purification and transparency. At the time when Tbilisi mayor cuts down sycamores unpunished, Georgi Khachidze has to take the rap for his ministry. Some of his employees have robbed their poverty-stricken state of GEL 7 mln. They face 14 years’ imprisonment with Hatuna Kalmakhelidze welcoming new prisoners with open arms.
Axe of Tbilisi democracy hits sycamores
Doublethink has become a good tradition of Georgian politicians. Seeing one thing, speaking another thing and doing an entirely different thing is a norm of decency in Sakartvelo’s political entrails. Actions of Tbilisi mayor Gigi Gugulava have been another demonstration of this extraordinary approach. At the time when parliament is stiffening punishment for illegal deforestation, the mayor of the capital city, Mishiko’s favorite, orders to destroy half a hundred magnificent trees right in the center of Tbilisi.

What is the reason for the government’s generosity? Is it the desire to make a step towards democracy or to split the oppositional front?2010-11-19 15:59
Europe feeding Saakashvili’s team with pills
Official Tbilisi representatives are rejoicing like little children. You bet: “big men” from Europe and America are praising them, promising protection and patronage and even calling “to play games” with them. Following NATO Parliamentary Assembly, which has accused Russia of the “occupation” of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, European Union has welcomed Mikheil Saakashvili as well, while the head of European Commission even suggested that Georgia should file an official application for making a speech at EU. A sweet pill to feed the Georgian leader’s dreams.
