Kabolov: Kokoity openly runs the country2012-01-24 17:24
Alla Dzhioeva's decision on withdrawing her signature under the agreement with South Ossetian authorities has once again proved that the situation in the country is far from normal. GeorgiaTimes' correspondents decided to learn how the representatives of Ossetian community in Moscow perceive the current state of affairs in Tskhinval. We've caught up with its head Valery Kabolov. According to him, despite the formal Eduard Kokoity's resignation, he continues to be real ruler of the republic, what has outraged Alla Dzhioeva.
The situation in South Ossetia gets increasingly complicated. Alla Dzhioeva's refusal to participate in March election and her intention to hold her own inauguration in the near future has shown the fragility of the agreements. According to Valery Kabolov, this step has become the result of Dzhioeva's conviction that the signed agreements were only a cover to keep the real power in Eduard Kokoity's hands.
"Signing the agreements, she was sure that all the electoral processes in the country would return into the legal framework, not as it has happened, when the administrative resource was fantastic and supported one candidate (who lost). And not like it's happening now, when they begin to invent new ways and new rules of the game - a language exam, require the presence of a member of the CEC at the meeting ... This was done to have an additional reason to remove unwanted people. Who knows, will they pass the exam or not?" said Valery Kabolov. "Dzhioeva sees what's happening, she realizes that they have cheated. She calls them to rectify the situation; she has specified what hadn't been done.
All law enforcement agencies are subject to Kokoity, the entire law enforcement system is subject to Kokoity. Not de jure - but de facto. He openly runs the country actually not being the president".
And this leadership is becoming more and more repressive. After arrest of members of Alla Dzhioeva's election staff on serious accusations South Ossetian authorities seem to have passed the point of no return and has decided to stop any protests. That's why in late year, members of the march in support of accused supporters of ex-Minister of Education found themselves behind bars.
