Interior Minister creates security threat2010-04-09 22:19
April 9 has traditionally been a hot day for the Georgian society since the time of rallies dispersed by Soviet troops in 1989. This year's anniversary is taking place in a tense atmosphere that personally Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili has stirred up - strangely enough.
Vano Merabishvili, "the backbone of Georgian statehood", Saakashvili regime's foundation and support, head of the ministry in charge of interior affairs and security matters gave a scandalous interview with Kommersant newspaper (Russia) foretelling the defeat of the opposition and revealing espionage nature of the Georgian Orthodox Church. In addition to revelations on the war in 2008 and methods of weaponization in the army his phrases caused a storm of negative emotions among parliamentary and radical opposition with the former now calling to summon the Security Council and the latter threatening severe punishment to the minister and a Kyrgyz scenario to the government.
The meeting of people responsible for domestic security must be organized discreetly, a representative of the parliamentary minority, Kartuli Dasi party leader Jondi Bagaturia thinks adding that Merabishvili mentioned facts that need to be discussed behind closed doors.
Georgy Targamadze of the Christian Democratic party was particularly shocked by the phrase that a law in Georgia is changed if it contradicts plans of the government, and consequently, as the minister interprets, people's interests too. In fact, that was quite clear even before Merabishvili's interview - let's recall legalization of plastic bullets and amendments to the election code.
Curiously enough, Targamadze was not shocked by Vano's reference to a 50-thousand dollar bribe the deputy offered Russian militaries to demolish Stalin monument in Gori. He must be proud of his inventiveness, it seems.
This fact however seems revolting to Nino Burdzhanadze, Democratic Movement - United Georgia leader since there are residential buildings around the monument and people were not evacuated. Targamadze was going to pay for their death. Burdzhanadze urges the General Prosecutor's Office to start a criminal case and launch an investigation against Merabishvili and Targamadze who basically plotted "shelling of Georgia".
This behavior was definitely abnormal on the part of representatives of the authorities, and the ex speaker insists that these people be done away with as soon as possible "otherwise the country will be in a state of constant fear and schizophrenia".
