Saakashvili's normality to be checked2013-04-11 17:25
Has the Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili acknowledged that the August war in South Ossetia had been unleashed by Georgia? Some analysts consider the words of the Prime Minister that the actions of the authorities of the country before the Russian forces had crossed the border of Georgia were inadequate are a kind of recognition. Ivanishvili said the events of 2008 would be thoroughly investigated. Can be the president Mikheil Saakashvili brought to account?
Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili welcomes the re-investigation of the facts that took place during the Russian-Georgian war in August 2008. According to the Prime Minister, the actions of the authorities of Georgia during the conflict were "inadequate." "I believe that the government, led by president Saakashvili, acted inappropriately when the fighting began. This refers to the period when the Russian troops had not yet crossed the border. Georgia could avoid military conflict. There were no attacks of such a scale that Georgia had to involve the army. When as a result of the shelling of Georgian villages a mortar shell got into one of the houses, without killing anyone, it was necessary to evacuate people from the village and enter there international observers, and not
to use the armed forces. For me personally many things in the conflict are covered with fog, so I welcome the statement of the Minister of Justice on the need for re-investigation," said Ivanishvili
Prime Minister did not rule out the possibility of summoning Saakashvili for interrogation. "I think Saakashvili should not be surprised if he gets a subpoena. This investigation will not affect the international image of Georgia, but only the image of the president. I think he should treat this with understanding," said Ivanishvili.
Justice Minister Thea Tsulukiani few days ago said that Georgia itself would conduct the investigation into the accusations of the international criminal court related to the war in August. According to Tsulukiani, Georgia has the relevant international obligation. "Prosecutor's Office of Georgia must investigate these facts, not to transfer the case to the international tribunal," said Tsulukiani. "I do not rule out that former and current senior officials, including the president of Georgia, will be interrogated."
Defense Minister Irakli Alasania also intends to look over the actions that led to the military conflict, the causes of military setbacks and whether Georgia could diplomatically prevent the outbreak of hostilities.
