Previously Georgia Times reported that Pro-opposition Labour party had responded to the campaign of the Liberty Institute NGO against the Catholicos Patriarch Ilia II and the Georgian Orthodox Church.

At yesterday's press conference Georgi Gugava, one of the party leaders, accused President Mikheil Saakashvili and his team of organizing this campaign.

"Right after the revolution the Ministry of Justice officially registered the sect of Jehovah's Witnesses, then invasion in Gldani diocese took place, its priests were arrested. Special units broke into Dmanissi church, and old church on Peria mountain was ruined. When Mikheil Saakashvili comes to the Holy Trinity Cathedral, priests are always searched there", Gugava said.

In his opinion, the present-day government tries to disintegrate the society and doesn't want the head of church to have such a great authority, therefore they conduct this campaign.
