Tskhinval to bring charges against Saakashvili

2009-03-26 20:06

1/4/4/2144.jpegSouth Ossetia is to bring a charge against president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili for genocide of Ossetians last August. It was stated by the republic's Prosecutor - General Taymuraz Khugaev on March 24.


"As part of investigation into the criminal case on Georgia's aggression in the August 2008 conflict Prosecutor-General's Office of South Ossetia has already acknowledged around 3500 individual victims, - Khugaev is quoted by ITAR-TASS. - All the victims relate to one criminal case initiated under the article on genocide of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. It is also possible that president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili will be the target of this criminal case".

Taymuraz Khugaev also reminded that the final statement on investigation into the August events would be presented by the EU committee in the near future. "Even if specific initiators are not named in any case these will be arguments necessary for South Ossetian inquest according to which there is no doubt that personally Georgian president of Georgia and a number of other persons are guilty of initiation of genocide. Specific charges have been formulated against them".

As Khugaev says Prosecutor-General's Office of South Ossetia is closely cooperating with Heidi Tagliavini's committee. That means Tskhinval adds document materials to the European record. And if the EU committee has any information to offer it will be only welcome. The RSO Prosecutor-General is not going to stop at what he has and in the future he relies on fair punishment of the culprits.

"In general we stand for setting up an international tribunal on the events in South Ossetia. These are long proceedings and I can't say whether they will be a success. But we must pursue this idea anyway. Sooner or later Saakashvili will be punished not only under Ossetian laws but according to the norms of international law. I believe we can hope so. If the European committee presents a fair evaluation of the events there will be a possibility to establish such a tribunal".
