Georgia’s reputation in the international arena is ruined

2008-11-14 16:03

Georgia's government has completely lost trust both inside the country and abroad and now is playing a loathsome, dirty game, - playing with other people's lives.

This is how the draft law on amnesty that is under consideration in Georgia's parliament was characterized by ex Minister for Foreign Affairs, now the leader of the opposition party "Way of Georgia" Salome Zurabishvili.


1/6/9/69.jpegAccording to her the amnesty has become for the authorities another kind of trade like everything they have done so far (The amnesty draft law is being considered in the first reading by Georgia's parliament on November 14 and according to preliminary information, as a result of amnesty that will be announced on November 23, about 2000 prisoners will be released, 3500 people will have their term of sentence cut in half, and the conditional sentence for 6500 convicts will be cancelled).

Salome Zurabishvili who came from France just yesterday was an on-air guest with "Kavkasia" television company last night trying to outline how Georgia was perceived abroad.

She noted that "due to" Saakashvili and his government Georgia had suffered a heavy blow to its reputation in the international arena.

"Saakashvili's credit is expired and this is not my personal point of view, this is the opinion of the West. By now nobody believes Saakashvili's theses that it was not he who initiated the war. The trust of Western countries to Georgia is so low that we will need to work extremely hard to regain it", - Zurabishvili stated.

The situation in Georgia according to her estimations is desperately hard. On the one hand the government has come to the deadlock; on the other hand the opposition is not united. Part of the opposition has made a deal with the government, the other simply withdrew. In this situation it is difficult for Georgia to dialogue.

"In case tomorrow Saakashvili and new Premier Mgaloblishvili vanish somewhere, the country must obtain a leader or a group of leaders with their concrete minimum program that will demonstrate to the West that they know how to drive the country out of the crisis and bring it to the next elections", - Salome Zurabishvili declared.
