Ivanishvili deprived of “dream”2011-11-23 19:20
Having no formal grounds to forbid Bidzina Ivanishvili, a French citizen, to stay in Georgia, the authorities are doing their best to make him feel ill at ease. The presentation of his political movement "Georgian Dream", scheduled for 25 November, is postponed indefinitely because of problems to rent a suitable place. On the whole, it's not surprising: after all, the country's leadership believes only in the "American dream".
Bidzina Ivanishvili started his political activity less than two months ago. Over this short period he has lost the status of a Georgian citizen, his business has been constantly under pressure. One would think there is nothing else to invent after the armed robbery of a cash-in-transit van owned by Kartu bank. As a result, the loss is nearly three million (USD and Euro). A few days ago head of the National Bank Georgi Kadagidze threatened to "impose order" in Kartu bank that violates law, as alleged.
What has come over the management of Bidzina Ivanishvili's bank that they unexpectedly launched illegal activities immediately after the owner turned to politics? Wouldn't it have been easier to hugger-mugger when the billionaire was outside the limelight? According to the Georgian authorities right after Mr. Ivanishvili became the subject of public attention, his subordinates decided to let themselves go. Apparently, the businessman is a poor judge of character, and hiring people is badly managed in his empire. Then how has he managed to earn USD 5.5 bn (according to Forbes)? Or does Mr. Kadagidze execute a political order of the country's top leaders aimed at ousting the dangerous rival from Georgia?
He is not the one who does it. Ivanishvili is being oppressed from all fronts. Still, isn't it strange that the man without Georgian citizenship is viewed as a serious threat to Saakashvili and his clique? According to the scope of confrontation seen at all levels, Mishiko has not been so scared since tie-chewing. Ivanisvhili's "Georigan Dream" terrifies him!
As was planned, on November 25 this public movement was supposed to be presented. Representatives of the billionaire were holding talks in order to rent a suitable place with the administration of Tbilisi Sports Hall (11,000) and Mikhail Meskhi stadium (24,600) viewers.
