Europe views Georgians as people

2011-10-26 12:55

Europe views Georgians as people. 23695.jpegEurope has lost all trust in Saakashvili's regime. For a long time Georgian rights defenders have been calling on Western politicians to pay attention to constant violation of human rights in the Transcaucasian republic. While Europe saw no alternative to Avlabari dictator, these calls remained unheard. Yet, the situation changed upon arrival of Bidzina Ivanishvili at the political arena of Sakartvelo. Last week he received all diplomats working in Tbilisi. Presently, Georgian rights defenders are expected in Strasbourg.


While Saakashvili's sidekicks were killing their compatriots in Rustaveli avenue, Brussels and Washington didn't turn a hair. But when billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili showed his political ambitions losing his citizenship in Georgia on Saakashvili's order - Thomas Hammarberg, EU commissioner was quick enough to invite a group of rights defenders from Sakartvelo to Strasbourg. Knowing that inertness of the West provided for Saakashvili's tyranny existence, Western politicians immediately remembered basic democratic values when a possibility to replace the shabby puppet from Tbilisi appeared and decided to show concern over the situation with civil rights in Georgia.

The delegation that left for Strasburg today comprises Manana Kobahidze, spokesperson of the Ombudsman, and Tamar Chugoshvili, chair of the Association of Young Lawyers. At the coming meeting with the high-ranking EU functionary they plan to call his attention to the pitiful status of national minorities in Georgia and other manifestations of discrimination. They also plan to discuss wide use of tortures against suspects by Georgia's law-enforcement bodies with the EU anti-torture committee chair.

"My top priority will be to speak about the situation in Georgian prisons, violations of human rights, criminal law, courts, attitude to lawyers, political persecutions. I also would like to inform them on the situation of convict Kakhi Tedliashvili and current tendencies in Georgia's penitentiary system", - Manana Kobahidze stated before leaving for France.

For a discussion at the European Court of Human Rights her colleagues plan to report on persecutions against prisoners who dare apply to the reputable rights-defending organization
