The reason was the conclusions made by the British experts who received evidence of the authenticity of the audio record where the president of Georgia actually authorized the airing of the simulated TV report about "the Russian troops' invasion" of the county on March 13.
At the briefing held on April 26 in Tbilisi Marriott Hotel, leader of the Republican Party, which is part of the alliance, David Usupashvili stated that, judging by the recorded conversation, Director General of the Imedi TV Company Georgi Arveladze and President Saakashvili have violated the Constitution and several articles of the Georgian Criminal Code.
In the opinion of the oppositionist, the following articles are among those that have been violated: "An attempt to interrupt a journalist's professional activity", "Deception of consumers", "An attempt to interrupt labor activity", "Abuse of authority and office", "Terrorist act".
Usupashvili underlined that Alliance for Georgia is going to file a lawsuit with the General Prosecutor's Office and Constitutional Court. Simultaneously, they started collecting signatures to initiate the process of impeachment of the Georgian president.
While commenting upon the information, political analyst, President of the Georgian Experts Club Soso Tsiskarishvili stated to Kavkaz-Uzel that the preparation of the impeachment procedure is mainly oriented at the world community's reaction, considering the fact that Saakashvili flatly denied his involvement in the mentioned TV report in the USA on April 13. According to the expert, the world community "should clearly see whom it is dealing with" and assess Saakashvili's activities in "other aspects" in a more critical way.
