Fuks and Frenkel under torture2011-09-23 16:55
Georgia's Themis keeps Roni Fuks and Zeev Frenkel, two Israeli businessmen, under a falsified case on bribery. According to Israel's mass media, unlucky investors suffer constant abuse in jails of Sakartvelo. Fuks' life is in serious threat: he is not given diabetic food anymore and he can't call a doctor. Frenkel's situation is hardly better. Saakashvili seems to be playing with fire: very soon the case will be considered in the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
Roni Fuks and Zeev Frenkel have been in Georgian prison for a year already. They were detained by Georgia's courageous "Columbos" at a meeting with Avtandil Haraidze, deputy minister of finance. As alleged, the businessmen were trying to bribe the official asking him not to challenge the verdict of the international court of arbitration. As a result, two Israeli citizens were convicted by the "world's fairest" city court of Tbilisi to 7 (Fuks) and 6.5 (Frenkel) years' imprisonment.
Many people in Georgia realize the case is fabricated. And the reason is clear. Zeev Frenkel is the owner of Nirrnetco company that took part in various business projects in the republic of Georgia. Fuks is in charge of Tramex that managed to get a license on monopolist control of oil and gas transportations in Georgia. However, after the state oil corporation was established the authorities of Sakartvelo immediately decided to do this business on their own and revoked Fuks's license. The investors don't want to give up. They launched a suit in the international court of arbitration and won. The Georgian government is to pay USD 100 mln to the Israelites.
Putting it mildly, Tbilisi has no extra money. The country's industry is on the wane, and foreign tranches supposed to restore it rest in pockets of officials. So the debt was doomed to remain unpaid and the businessmen were sent to prison in order to be destroyed morally, as it appears.
