How Gorozia took away the land2012-11-07 15:18
After the change of leadership in Georgia the process of returning illegally expropriated land to the owners has begun. It turns out that in the regions where the development of tourism is being planned, the previous leadership preferred not to buy the land from the people, but to take away. In particular, this happened in Anaklia, where a large resort is being built.
Guram Tirkiya, who was the owner of twenty-one hectare of land near the sea, accuses Zaza Gorozia - Governor of Samegrelo and Upper Svaneti - of the illegal seizure of the land. Prosecutor's office accused Tirkiya of acquiring land through fraud. According to him, Gorozia threatened to arrest members of his family.
"Gorozia called me to him and said: I will take away everything I want and leave you only your house. I asked why? After all that I acquired everything in accordance with the decision of the Supreme Court. He answered: who controls the Supreme Court? This was the end of our meeting. On the tenth day I was summoned to the prosecutor's office and threatened they would arrest me, my son and my wife. Probably because the lands were registered to their name", says Tirkiya.
Marina Sordo told a similar story: "They summoned to the prosecutor's office and told that the state needed the land, and I had to give up. They created such a situation that I saw no way out, and I wrote a dedicatory letter".
Former landowners are going to file suit against Zaza Gorozia and restore justice. But the deputy chief of Zugdidi Registration Service says Gorozia has already taken care of the destruction of evidence supporting the right to property.
Not only the land owners have suffered illegal seizure. The former official Shota Bigvava, who had refused to participate in fraud with land, said his refusal was the cause of his subsequent dismissal. "I got the task from Gorozia to withdraw the land from private owners and register them as public property", he says.
However, the Zaza Gorozia denies this information: "I have not had any contact with employees of public records, and these people are slanderers", he said in a phone conversation with GTimes reporter.
Zaza Gorozia recently was the Minister of Agriculture. In addition, he is one of the closest associates of Saakashvili. After the defeat of the "National Movement" in the parliamentary elections, the president reappointed Gorozia governor of Samegrelo and Upper Svaneti. Now Gorozia categorically denies the allegations and says there was nothing illegal in the weaning lands. Part of the people has got the compensation, while the rest getting it at this stage.
