New Georgia: How everything begins2012-10-08 18:24
Tbilisi these days is full of rumors. Supporters of the defeated ruling party argue that the cases of robbery in the city and the country as a whole have become more frequent, and the return of thieves in law is inevitable. The victorious opposition claims that the police is engaged in sabotage, using the criminals to intentionally worsen the crime situation. But the main topic of discussion today - how the system of government will be arranged in the transition period.
After the landslide victory of the opposition in face of Bidzina Ivanishvili's coalition "Georgian Dream" in Georgia they have started to talk about the risk of returning of thieves in law to the country. For example, the former Minister of Economy Kakha Bendukidze does not exclude such a possibility. "Such danger does exist, since we know that the thieves in law were involved in the fight on the side of Ivanishvili. But I do not know if they would manage to do this given the powerful opposition and the president, who has the right to appoint the heads of security agencies - the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Justice - for a year, until the completion of the political reform in Georgia. In this situation, we can prevent the thieves from abrupt returning",
Bendukidze said in an interview to the PirWeli.com.ge.
Meanwhile, the cases of robbery and pilfering have become more frequent in the regions. Thieves of all the regions specialize mainly in car batteries. In society they are considered allegedly controlled by special ministry for prison affairs. No one doubts that these thieves were hired to discredit the "Georgian Dream". In the air of the TV-channel "Maestro" one of the arrested thieves told that he had been promised an early release if he cooperates, that is to engage in petty theft and sometimes to beat someone. The thief told that he was forbidden to carry the stolen things to his house: he was to pass the stolen things to the customers. But the thief, of course, does not know the customer. But it's clear who would want to undermine the credibility and image of the victorious opposition.
One of the members of Ivanishvili's coalition Soso Vakhtangishvili stated that despite the repeated warnings to the officials of Gori - police chief Beso Berianidze, district police chief Levan Kiria and the chief of patrol Tamaz Togonidze, no action to prevent crimes in the region was taken. "They do not respond to the calls", Soso Vakhtangishvili said. "Their group encourages the criminality".
