Beware: Georgian police!

2012-01-31 21:30

Mikhail Saakashvili has been dishonoured by the wife of the new-made tycoon-politician Bidzina Ivanishvili. Ekaterina Khvedelidze decided to make a contribution on behalf of the Georgian president to Justice Fund named after Sandro Girgvliani who was killed by policemen and his mother Irina Enukidze who died of grief. Despite the requirement of Strasbourg Court, Georgian authorities have not held a repeated investigation of the murder. Moreover, security officials still punish everyone reminding of the MIA high-ranking officials' shameful business.


Six years after his son was murdered by Georgian policemen, Guram Girgvliani decided to open a fund named after the guiltlessly killed son and his mother, Irina Enukidze, who never lived to the punishment of the criminals and died in 2007. Strasbourg Court forced the Georgian authorities to compensate the loss of son to the family by paying them 50 thousand Euros but the second court order - a repeated investigation - has not been executed yet. The entire Georgian opposition insists on it since the wife of Minister of MIA Vano Merabishvili was involved in the affair together with other high-ranking officials especially appreciated by the president.

It was the wife of tycoon Bidzina Ivanishvili Ekaterina Khvedelidze who decided to put Mikhail Saakashvili to shame, if he knows what shame is, of course. She made the first contribution to Justice Fund named after Girgvliani on behalf of the head of state. The amount is symbolic - 100 laris. That's how much Saakashvili owes her according to the verdict of Tbilisi City Court, which gave her back the Georgian citizenship illegally taken away by the president. Mikhail Nikolayevich was so much scared by a competitor in the person of Ivanishvili that he hastily denied Motherland to him and his wife. Now the price of Saakashvili's mistake will replenish the fund established to "set up justice in Georgia" and reward human right defenders. "Time will come soon when everyone, including the president, will be equal before the law", - Khvedelidze is sure.

So far, the "partially free" Georgia, in the opinion of Freedom House, is too far from justice. Sandro Girgvliani's case becomes more and more socially meaningful. Each January 28, on the day the young man died, public organizations hold meetings inevitably causing the ruling circles' irritation. This year is no exclusion: an action in front of the parliament had not been approved by the government and resulted in its participants' arrest.

40 protesters came out to the pavement before the parliament building, then crossed the road and blocked the traffic. Policemen pushed them back to the pavement. However, the meeting participants again took position in the traffic way and the meeting was broken up with seven participants being detained.
