Finding shelter from reprisals in Rustaveli cages2009-06-05 21:10
Salome Zurabishvili has grounded the opposition's intention to continue the protest actions despite their inefficiency. It turned out that the stubbornness of the uncompromising opponents is attributed to the fear of revenge on the part of authorities in case the opposition gives up further struggle for the president's resignation.
Supporters of The Way of Georgia do not take an active part in clashes with the police and do not represent a target for the authorities' accusations of various crimes. However, leader of the party Salome Zurabishvili never misses a chance to blame Mikhail Saakashvili's regime for reprisals, both planned and those that have been already taken.
The day before, the former head of MFA involuntarily confessed during the meeting in Tbilisi why the opposition goes on with its unfruitful confrontation. "Should the protest wave in Georgia decline, the country is going to face another wave of destructions and reprisals", - IA Regnum is quoting Zurabishvili's statement. It means the Georgian opposition is moving forward because it does not see the way back. As soon as the participants of the actions that are denouncing the president and the minister of internal affairs give up their voluntary confinement at Rustaveli Avenue they will immediately find themselves in real wards.
Salome Levanovna did not have to search long for an example of the authorities grabbing people behind bars regardless of their social standing, position and awards. Honored military men and distinguished experts accused of having prepared the military mutiny at the Mukhrovani base in May are still kept in prison, while others are wanted. The proof of their "treachery" and "a plot against government" is limited to doubtable telephone records and witnesses' evidence.
"There are reprisals in the army. We are appealing not only to the foreign diplomats but to the whole community including the Ministry of Defense and leaders of the Army to protect the Army from total destruction", - Salome Zurabishvili tried to right the servicemen at the meeting. According to the opposition, the battalion in Mukhrovani did not want to break up the protesters in Tbilisi and that is why refused to obey. In their turn, the generals and military experts, who had supposedly led the soldiers on to exciting a mutiny, had to pay for criticizing Saakashvili's regime. Let it be the lesson for the oppositional leaders.
