Saakashvili for revision of pardon policy

2009-09-17 10:37

Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, believes that Georgian police is under serious pressing of destructive forces and abstains from the use of weapons when even it must be used.


He made that statement last evening, when visiting policemen wounded when detaining a criminal in Uznadze Street in Tbilisi.

The criminal, Rati Rekhviashvili, was convicted, then pardoned and released. Therefore Saakashvili proposed to revise the policy of pardoning. Yesterday he resisted police, wounded with knife three of them, one subsequently died.

He explained that amnesties will still take place, but won't concern people who continue their criminal activities after release.

The president highlighted that due to selfless work of police Georgia became the safest country of the region in aspect of crimes, and many people leave cars in the yards without even locking them.

Yet, according to the President, police became the object of undeserved criticism from the side of some political forces and press, and in fact "got a complex of non-usage of weapons".

"I believe that when weapons needs be used, like in that case, it must be used", Saakashvili said and underlined that if police used weapons against that criminal, opposition would stage a protest action and add the criminal to the list of victims of police.

Mikheil Saakashvili reminded that in recent years 85 policemen were killed on duty, and none of protest action organizers ever thought to doubt these facts.
