Merabishvili to punish the innocent2011-08-05 22:35
Georgian police have got absolutely nothing to do, at least, in the opinion of head of the Georgian Interior Ministry Vano Merabishvili. Sakartvelo's chief security minister proudly reported that the law-enforcement officers are mainly engaged in "servicing" the population. Everyone saw what kind of "service" Merabishvili and company rendered to the people on the night of May 26. Why being hypocritical?
"I am glad criminality has been much reduced of late, - Vano Merabishvili stated when opening a new police building in Moscow Avenue in Tbilisi. - Policemen have got less work to do, so they are mainly engaged in servicing the people". The head of MIA found it necessary to add that he was very proud for Georgia, which has purportedly become one of the world leaders in the low criminality level.
He was echoed by city governor Gigi Ugulava who expressed his satisfaction with the fact that the Georgians "feel safe now". The Mayor mainly explained it by the police's efficient work and remarked that the "new reality" has been created in the republic due to the law-enforcement authorities.
It's a universally-known truth, though, that the reality scrupulously built up by Saakashvili's regime in the people's eyes differs drastically from real life. All the leading TV channels are under government's control and independent media are constantly chased. As for the level of criminality being close to zero, Mishiko's associates have gone too far here. Why are the prisons stuffed up then, if there are no wrong-minded citizens in the country?
People have many times suffered from the might of the police regime, especially in the tragic events that happened on the night of May 26 in Rustaveli Avenue. The video record with several policemen beating the already non-resisting people was broadcasted by all the world channels. Numerous international organizations expressed their indignation at the Georgian security officials' actions.
