A Georgian detective story. Terry Davis has scolded Burjanadze2009-06-25 13:58
No day without a scandal - this seems to be the principle of the current domestic policy in Georgia. As soon as summer came, the meetings and the protest actions declined a little, while the confrontation of political elites became more severe. This week, the authorities initiated the all-fronts offensive: the case of Nino Burjanadze's husband on "secret negotiations with the Russian special services representatives" has emerged again. The GeorgiaTimes correspondent tried to puzzle out the aspects of the Georgian domestic policy.
The authorities have long been holding a grudge against leader of the United Georgia Democratic Movement. It was Nino Burjanadze who has been most often accused of connections with Russia and receiving money from the North. Her husband Badri Bitsadze became the hero of numerous scandalous video records.
In March, before the current political confrontation, the authorities had presented the video records supposedly confirming the fact of Bitsadze's negotiations on weapons purchasing that he had conducted with the political forces associated with Russia, as well as with thieves in law residing in Ukraine. After that, a video record was broadcasted where Bitsadze is handing out clubs to the young oppositionists for their "peaceful" fight with the regime.
All these facts were recollected to Badri Bitsadze the day before. It turns out that the numerous discrediting audio and video records that have grown immensely in number have never sunk into oblivion. On June, 23, the activist of the parliament majority Goka Gabashvili demanded explanations from the former Chief Officer of the Georgian Border Police Badri Bitsadze as to the half-forgotten story about weapon purchasing.
According to GHN, Gabashvili asserted that Badri Bitsadze, husband to the former Speaker of Parliament Nino Burjanadze, in the course of his visit to Kiev together with the Russian businessman Shalva Brust allegedly held a meeting with a Mamtazh, who was an associate of Shakro Kalashev, a thief in law. Gabashvili is sure that Burjanadze's party is sponsored from Russia and expressed his readiness to provide any evidence of the accusation. This statement was made in the context of the ruling majority's speculations on the issue of financial sources used by the radical opposition.
One should however remember that Nino Burjanadze already filed a lawsuit against Mikhail Saakashvili for "discrediting the honour, dignity and business reputation" relating to the accusations of her receiving "the Russian money". However, it did not embarrass the ruling majority representatives who were indignant at the unknown source of the opposition sponsorship.
