Head of the Teachers and Scientists Free Trade Union Manana Gurchumelidze is seeking political asylum in Canada. The business-minded Georgian kal-batono could not stand the authorities' pressure. There will be no promised multi-thousand meetings of the dismissed teachers. The trade union has run out of means of living. Dmitry Shashkin, minister "for reduction in the educational field", can be congratulated with a victory over his opponents.
The sexy Minister Veronika Kobalia in due time arrived from Canada on the president's order, while a more weighty person, in the proper and figural sense of word, Chairwoman of the Teachers and Scientists Free Trade Union Manana Gurchumelidze has one of these days ran to Canada.
She told Kavkaz-press that she would plead Canadians for political asylum because she was subject to persecution. "I ran away from Georgia to secure myself and my family. The government bodies persecuted us because of my materials", - she stated.
They say in the trade union that they know nothing of the threats addressed at the leader of the organization. Acting Chairman Alexander Beridze assured GeorgiaTimes that the entire story with the persecution is just a lie. On August 8, Gurchumelidze gave in notice to be dismissed from office since September 10 on medical grounds. Afterwards, she visited a conference in Canada and since then Manana never dealt with Beridze any more.
Meanwhile, in July, Gurchumelidze publicly complained about being pressed by Ministry of Education. She said that the government "declared open war against the trade union and prohibited school headmasters to transfer membership dues to the organization's account".
The schools, which paid the teachers' dues despite the oral order by Ministry of Education, were subject to audit. The rest of the schools never transferred any means; neither did they give in notice of their withdrawal from the trade union. Besides, the authorities established "alternative trade unions governed by Tato Shavshishvili, who is directly associated with Ministry of Education", says Press Secretary Nato Gubeladze.
Today, Vice President of the Free Trade Union Maya Liparteliani confirmed to GeorgiaTimes that the dues paid by most Georgian schools have not yet been transferred to the organization's accounts. It means that the activities of the teachers' rights defenders have been paralyzed.
