Saakashvili risks being beaten2009-03-24 09:10
Georgian leaders may be physically beaten, the opposition warns. On April 9 the actions of the mob are unpredictable. Georgian parliamentarians listened to the warnings and hid themselves behind window bars.
At the end of last week Georgia's deputy corpse took precautionary measures in the run-up to mass rallies of the opposition. Bars were fixed on windows of the parliamentary building as reported by GHN with reference to Strong Georgia oppositional faction representative Giya Tsagareishvili. According to him there was a special order by the parliamentary administration issued on March 18. Iron bars will protect two lower floors.
Apparently the officials recalled the scenario of the "velvet revolution" when the parliament was seized. But not only historical background makes the deputies hind behind bars. The oppositionists conveyed a very clear message that the country leaders may be physically injured at the time of public riots.
Georgia's ex state minister for conflict settlement Georgy Khaindrava advised the president Mikheil Saakashvili to escape and outwait people's rallies. "I call on Saakashvili to leave Georgia 2-3 days before April 9", - he stated at the meeting in Gori.
According to another oppositionist, ex prime minister and now leader of For Fair Georgia movement Zurab Nogaideli the president has already scheduled his escape from Tbilisi. As he says Saakashvili is going to leave for Ajaria before the start of the protests. "It's ok, we will hold a protest action in Ajaria too", - Zurab Nogaideli intimidated according to VZGLYAD newspaper.
Certainly the president will try to be covered with the army and internal troops. But the opposition is not afraid of them. According to Eka Beselia, the Secretary of "Movement for United Georgia" chaired by ex Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili, if the authorities use force "we will not run home but will oppose with bare hands".
The most straightforward warning was expressed by "National Forum" leader Gubaz Sanikidze. If Saakashvili does not follow the demands of the protestors Georgian authorities will be "physically liquidated". "I don't want anyone to run around holding their burned corpses", - the politician is quoted by Rosbalt.
