Parliament of Georgia intends to create a commission to investigate the circumstances of the war in August 2008. This was announced by the head of the parliamentary majority form the coalition "Georgian Dream" David Saganelidze. The head of the Ministry of Justice Thea Tsulukiani said she planned to interrogate the president Mikheil Saakashvili, thus provoking the outrage of the National Security Council Secretary George Bokeria.
"While it is unknown exactly in what format this commission will work, but it will be definitely established," he said. "The public needs to know which events preceded the war and what has escalated the situation," said Saganelidze.
He stressed that a similar parliamentary commission established in 2008 "has failed to give answers to the questions," the ITAR-TASS reported.
Deputy Chairman of Parliament of Georgia, a member of the "Georgian Dream - Conservatives" Zviad Dzidziguri noted that there are still many open questions related to the events of August 2008.
"A lot of things need to be investigated: the journalists were killed, genocide happened, there has occurred very great crime against humanity, military units of other state have closed the borders of our territory. All this should be investigated. We know that the process of investigation was fragmented and concluded in Tagliavini. This does not mean that we know all about the August war," said Dzidziguri.
"If the Commission of Davitaia (parliamentary commission established after the August war) would have worked well in the autumn of 2008, these problems would not have existed. So there is no trust in relation to the Commission and its conclusion. Putin is in no way linked to the government or the opposition of modern Georgia, so let Putin take care of his affairs, and we will take care of ours," said a member of the "Georgian Dream - Republicans" David Berdzenishvili.
Thus he commented on the statement of Russian president Vladimir Putin in Netherlands, who has promised to look into the situation with the death of Dutch journalist Stan Storimans in August 2008 in the Georgian city of Gori.
Dutch cameraman Storimans, who had been preparing a report for the news service of the broadcasting company "RTL", died on August 12, 2008, in Gori. His colleague, reporter Jeroen Akermans has been slightly injured as a result of explosion.
