Mass amnesty will take place in Georgia by the 5th anniversary of the Rose Revolution, claimed Vano Merabishvili,the Internal Minister of Geogia on the conference of two parliamentary committees: the Committee of Human Rights and the Committee of Legal Points on Thursday. The MPs discussed the plans and candidates of the new Cabinet, and the candidates for the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Internal Affairs and Justice were summoned. As it's widely known, the former saves his post; the latter will pass from Nicolay Gvaramia to Zurab Adeishvili, the ex- General Prosecutor.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Merabishvili mentioned the date of the amnesty, November, 23rd, the day of the Rose Revolution (November, 23rd, 2003 ) and underlined that would be the first time when he, as the Internal Minister, wouldn't stand against it. «We used to consider mass amnesty unreasonable as it sharpened the criminogenic situation, but this time we support the amnesty», - said the Minister.
He didn't mention how many imprisoned would be amnestied but said that hundreds would be released or pardoned; moreover, some would have their terms shortened.
As it had been previously mentioned, the President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, dismissed the PM, Vladimir Gurgenidze a few days ago. For his post he proposed Grigol Mgaloblishvili, the Georgian ambassador in Turkey. On Wednesday the candidate presented the new Cabinet to the Parliament. Only four ministers were changed. Besides the Minister of Justice, new politicians would head the Ministries of Environment protection; Culture, Monument Protection and Sport; Refugees and Resettlement.
