The decline of Georgian democracy2011-07-29 12:41
Georgian human rights organizations presented a report on the state of human rights in their country. Their conclusions are not at all reassuring. Democracy has failed to "naturalize" in Sakartvelo and now it is to be replaced by not an authoritarian but a totalitarian regime with all the relevant consequences. People are dying in prisons and even potential enemies of the current government are prosecuted in advance. The sad situation was described to the journalists and diplomats by human right defenders.
sad situation was described to the journalists and diplomats by human right defenders.
The luxurious Sheraton Metekhi Palace hotel is a favourite spot for holding various VIP parties. As a rule, these are optimistic events but the atmosphere was not very happy here yesterday. Human right defenders presented a report on the state of affairs in the field of human rights. Problems are growing in number. The report was read out by Ucha Nanuashvili, head of the Human Rights Center NGO. Let us remind you that a week ago, at the height of the photographers affair, this organization held a briefing where it was stated that its employees were monitored. Nanuashvili told that their cars were constantly followed by different automobiles having the same registration number. The human right defenders supposed that they would go next as "spies" and decided to strike a warning blow. As we can see, the head of the Human Rights Center has not been arrested so far and is able to hold accusatory conferences.
What kind of person is Ucha Nanuashvili and why is he not liked by Georgian patriots? He declaimed against the Georgian aggression in South Ossetia in August 2008, believing that the war was launched by Saakashvili's administration. According to a source from Tbilisi, "he had a report that seemed to be written in the Russian General Staff". Here is the design of the future accusation of espionage, by the way - "your report was written in the Russian General Staff". That is why, Georgian law-enforcement authorities have been looking on Nanuashvili with suspicion.
But let us come back to the situation with human rights. According to the conference initiators, the cases of application of force have much grown in number this year. For the first time in many years, there were those who died as a result of a break-up of a protest action on the night of May 26.
