No court for Saakashvili

2012-05-12 14:30

Residing in Belgium, Georgian opposition leader Mikheil Bladadze initiated in the Constitutional Court of Belgium proceedings against Saakashvili. Bladadze has accused Georgian president of numerous human rights violations, in particular - the pursuit of the opposition. According to the oppositionist, the documents against Saakashvili are already collected; victory is a matter of time. An expert in international law told GTimes if the plaintiff-emigrant can win.

Mikheil Bladadze, an activist of the international media group "Objective", broadcasting in Georgia, recently announced that a lawsuit against Mikheil Saakashvili has been prepared in Belgium.


Under Saakashvili Georgia has become a prison, the plaintiff believes. The number of prisoners in the country has reached 45,000 people. "This figure beats the record in the history of Georgia", Bladadze said. Separately, the oppositionist touched on Georgia's political prisoners. According to him, there are about a hundred of them in politically tolerant Georgia. International Federation for Human Rights has officially recognized 19 of them the "prisoners of conscience". It is also inconceivable that Europe does not see the problem. "European Union keeps Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in its "black list" for seven years for a much smaller number of political prisoners", Bladadze said. The Georgian activist does not understand why has the EU

"missed" Saakashvili. "If official Brussels is not consistent in its actions, we act through the court", he concluded.

Merab Bladadze is emigrant and human rights activist who was expelled from Georgia for the disloyal attitude toward Mikheil Saakashvili and who has found a refuge in Belgium. This man has been trying to attract world attention to the subject of the real situation in Georgia for many years. For example, in April 2010, he was one of the leaders of the collective rally of the Georgian diaspora in Europe in front of the European Commission building in Brussels. The participants tried to draw attention of the EU to the issue of Georgian political prisoners. In April 2010, Bladadze and other emigrants sent a multi-page appeal about the "prison named Georgia" in the name of Catherine Ashton. However, Ms. Ashton has ignored this appeal. Having failed, Merab Bladadze prepared for the assault on another body - the Belgian Constitutional Court.

However, Europe still keeps a blind eye on the actions of the Georgian president. A similar reaction to Saakashvili is expected from a Belgian court. A lawyer Mikheil Joffe, an expert in international law, director of international human rights center "Moscow - the Russians", told GTimes about this
