Dismissed deputy of Kobalia made strongly-worded statements
Uruzmag Karkusov, the dismissed deputy Minister of Economy, made a special statement for GeorgiaТimes.
He compared the country with "police junta", disclaimed optimistic speeches about developing Georgian economy and claimed the situation with corruption was far worse than it was told.
He also compared his ex-boss Vera Kobalia with an Australian aborigine, who also has nothing to do with economy.
"They say the economy of Georgia is developing the best in South Caucasus. Then why can't we outstrip Armenia in production per person rate. Armenia is practically in blockade. We cant compare our conditions with theirs. Then something's wrong in the development of economy. But how can something be right if there's no production and "fresh blood" is always injected. Maybe, appoint a new Minister of economy from Australian aborigines, it will make more sense. At least, he wouldn't pretend he knows economy and Georgian language," Karkusov said.
"Only in totalitarian and corrupted countries the share of small business doesn't exceed 10, at maximum 15 %. Here small business doesn't reach even 10%. Then who we are? Worse than totalitarian and corrupted countries. In the country there's no entrepreneur left never fined and never exerted pressure on," the resigned official continued.
"All prisons are overcrowded. We outstripped everyone who can be outstripped, in the number of people in prisons per 100 000 people. Only in totalitarian countries and countries of military junta courts don't mostly bring acquittals, as in our country. Two months of imprisonment and that's it. Both to a murderer and a woman accidentally departed from law," Karkusov said in resentment.
