No European values left in Georgia – French ambassador2011-03-23 13:15
French Ambassador to Georgia Eric Furnier criticized the official Tbilisi's policy concerning the freedom of word.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As reported by GHN, Furnier underlined that he was shocked by the recent report delivered by NGO "Open Community - Georgia" describing the state of human rights in Georgia.
"All the European Council's efforts on rendering help to Georgia seem to be vain. There is absolutely no progress. What is left of the European values in Georgia - there is nothing left!" - the French diplomat stated.
According to him, the active pressure of the Georgian authorities upon the media and public organizations causes nothing but indignation.
"I think we are talking about a neo-bolshevist country. Europe will have to change its policy in respect of Georgia", - Eric Furnier underlined.
Let us remind you that earlier, Nino Burjanadze allowed such comparison in respect of the Georgian authorities. Notably, she stated that today's Georgia resembles the USSR.
During the meeting with OSCE Head Audronjus Ajubalis, Burjanadze compared Georgia to the Soviet Union and called Mikhail Saakashvili's team "neo-bolshevists".
"We need the West's adequate reaction to the fact that the country is actually ruled by neo-bolshevists and Georgia is a modern Soviet Union", - Burjanadze underlined, having added that the country's population won't put up with such situation.
