Photographers affair brought Georgia back to the USSR2011-07-19 12:49
The scandalous affair with the detention of several Georgian photographers accused of espionage in favour of Russia acquires a paradox character day by day. Many people daily demand the arrestees' liberation, stressing their complete innocence and the absurdity of the accusations presented. Meanwhile, the state authorities, pretending not to notice the growing public discontent inside and outside the country, make strange and often controversial statements on the matter, entangling in a web of lies.
Everyone has realized that the true reason of the scandal is the professional activity of Irakly Gedenidze, Georgy Abdaladze and Zurab Kurtsikidze. They simply turned up at the wrong place and at the wrong time. They saw something the Georgian government would like to conceal. That is why, the photographers affair bears a secrecy label, which will hardly be removed before the court awards a sentence. Unfortunately, there is a great probability that it will be a verdict of guilty, for the local Themis' servers cannot cast a shadow on the activity of the brave Georgian secret-service agents, of whose impeccability Saakashvili's regime is trying to convince the whole world.
So far, the supporters of the detained journalists are trying to attract the international community's attention to another fit of spy mania among the Georgian government. Today, it is not a shield depicting St.George but a crossed photo camera that has become the republic's "coat of arms". It should be noted that the pickets in support of the media workers are held not only in the territory of the republic. Their participants are sure that the actions of the Georgian law-enforcement authorities are actually related to the work of the media that shot severe break-ups of the oppositional meetings in Tbilisi held at the end of May.
