Fuks and Frenkel to be released to the other world2011-11-02 12:57
It is likely that businessmen Roni Fuks and Zaev Frenkel will soon be released from the Georgian prison they are presently in. Alas, this will not be freedom.
Ben Caspit, an Israeli publicist, is beating the alarm: his compatriots are likely to die in prison.
From jail to the next world is the "liberation" two unlucky businessmen from Israel Roni Fuks and Zaev Frenkel detained by the Georgian law-enforcement authorities on suspicion of bribing, may have. Indeed, this case is a demonstration that a struggle against a vice is much worse than the vice itself. It seems, Saakashvili's adoration for Singapore was too much when he started using totalitarian practices of China where bribing is subject to capital punishment. Yet, it should be remarked, the Heavenly Empire does not seek membership in "civilized Europe". Unlike Georgia.
Certainly, death penalty does not exist in Sakartvelo. Who would allow that? External decencies should be observed. Yet, the Georgian ministry for punishment execution has a wide choice of methods to send poor prisoners straight to the other world. Fuks and Frenkel are facing this kind of execution, and their compatriot - Ben Caspit, a publicist, calls on the authorities of his country to punish Tbilisi that's gone too far.
Both businessmen are treated in a torturous manner. Fuks, ill with diabetes, is not allowed to see the doctor or have daily walks in fresh. By night prison workers organize searches and wake the poor man up every few hours. Isn't this eagerness nothing but refined torture? Frenkel was denied required medicines and suffered a heart attack in cell.
"Roni Fuks is not young and healthy. In order to release him, it's not necessary to set free a thousand killers (like in a bargain with Gilad Shalit, an Israeli corporal - ed.). No killer should be released. Georgians must understand that treating an Israeli entrepreneur like that will cost them dearly. The price will be higher than USD 100 mln (the Georgian authorities owe to Fuks and his Greek partner, Kardasopulus - ed), - Caspit writes in Mosafshabat supplement to Maariv newspaper.
