Mikheil Saakashvili’s arithmetic. How to divide a million?2009-05-20 23:59
Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili is again trying to discredit those implacable oppositionists who consider his immediate resignation and early presidential elections as well as free and fair parliamentary and Tbilisi mayor elections this autumn as the only decisive measures to overcome the political crisis in the country.
In his speech for the parliamentary majority consisting of his supporters (the opposition refused to take part in the activities of parliament) the President got back to the issue of the failed military coup in Georgia.
As is known a few dozen servicemen were detained and are interrogated with regard to the Mukhrovani mutiny case. Among the detainees are Giya Gvaladze who was Delta Special Unit Commander in the 1990s, tank battalion's colonel Mamuka Gorgiashvili. Ex National Guard of Georgia Commander Koba Kobaladze is charged with the preparation of coup d'etat. The general doesn't admit his guilt and has been on hunger strike for 11 days in the pretrial detention centre.
Georgia's ex Defense Minister David Tevzadze told about the retired officers' intention to form a public movement in support of the detained general, Interfax reports. Tevzadze read out a statement on behalf of the retired officers and war veterans highlighting that "General Kobaladze is a political prisoner".
However Mikheil Saakashvili obstinately insists that the planned coup was imposed from without stating the coup supporters in parliament were offered a MILLION dollars. As the information sources report the head of the state did not specify who had offered the money. Neither did he name supposed recipients of this sum nor whether the money had reached them at all.
These vague accusations look like a well-known saying: "Go I don't know where; bring me I don't know what".
It will be remembered the rebellion at Mukhrovani military base took place on May 5 2009 when the units deployed there declared disobedience to the authorities. After the negotiations in Saakashvili's personal presence the rebels forewent their plans and laid down their arms. Then the Georgian president delivered a live speech on all TV channels stating the mutiny had been organized by ex servicemen whose links with special services of a foreign state were obvious.
To get rid of any doubts of the people the Interior Ministry Spokesman showed new video footage recorded with "a hidden camera" to the journalists.
