National Movement requests to delay interrogations2013-04-03 14:16
Members of the former ruling party "United National Movement" have called on investigators to refrain from interrogation of its activists during the election campaign. This was stated by a member of the National Movement Mikhail Machavariani.
Interim parliamentary election in three majority districts of Georgia - in Nadzaladevi (Tbilisi), Baghdadi (Imereti region) and Samtredia (Imereti region) - will be held on April 27. The seats in the Parliament from majority districts freed after the deputies Thea Tsulukiani, Archil Kbilashvili and Kakha Kaladze had been appointed Minister of Justice, Prosecutor General and the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources respectively.
"The following officials were summoned for interrogation: Eliso Nikolaishvili - Executive Secretary, she has five-month baby, the woman was summoned for interrogation to 9 pm; Tamara Vashakidze, whho is working at 18 polling stations; Lily Djibouti - the head of the 21st polling station was interrogated during hour and a half; Dali Zarkua - the head of the 23rd polling station; Ekaterina Sharashidze - the former head of the 89th polling station," said Machavariani.
However, he did not specify the case to which interrogation related.
As noted by Machavariani, such actions of the investigators hinder the campaign of the "United National Movement" which is taking part in the interim parliament election.
"I urge the investigating authorities to refrain from summoning our activists for interrogation, particularly in the three electoral districts - Nadzaladevi, Samtredia and Baghdadi ... Less than a month remains till the election, and in fact the whole staff has been summoned for the questioning," said Machavariani.
A representative of the "Georgian Dream" Zurab Abashidze stated that such statements are connected to the fact that the National Movement candidates have no chance for winning in the interim parliament.
"We remember very well the conditions under which the campaign of the "Georgian Dream" took place (until October 1, 2012). It is ridiculous to say that the campaign is being carried out under some pressure ... This is connected to the fact that their candidates have no chance for winning," said Abashidze.
