Dzidziguri: Georgia wasn’t so much criticized even in Shevardnadze’s times2011-04-12 14:54
Leader of the Conservative Party Zviad Dzidziguri stated that the criticism of the situation with the human rights in Georgia contained in the U.S. State Department's report was never so fierce even in the times of Eduard Shevardnadze.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As was reported by GHN, Dzidziguri stressed the importance of the fact that Washington pinpointed attention upon the violation of human rights in Georgia.
At the same time, the oppositionist added that the complete responsibility for the authorities' actions in the country should be born by the president personally, in which connection he pointed at the meaninglessness of the "government week" recently held by the Georgian parliament. "You think there is a government anywhere? Gilauri did not take direct part in the arrest of Israeli businessmen; it was not done by him, Saakashvili forced him to. When refugees were kicked out of their dwellings it was not Subeliani's initiative; it was Saakashvili's initiative. If the freedom of media and all the state channels of republican meaning are connected to demagogy, it was arranged personally by Saakashvili. That is why, the government officials' appeal to the parliament has no meaning. The main culprit is behind it all", - Dzidziguri believes.
Let us remind you that recently, U.S. Ambassadoer to Georgia John Bass told about the situation with the human rights violation and restriction of the freedom of speech in Georgia in his video appeal published on YouTube.
Bass' speech was connected with the report of the U.S. State Department dedicated to the development of democracy in the world. According to the American diplomat, Georgia was subject to fierce criticism for the enhanced elite corruption, multiple cases of torturing prisoners and the limitation of human rights and freedoms.
"Representatives of the high-ranking U.S. authorities, including Vice President Joe Biden, will continue the dialogue with the Georgian officials on the matter", - Bass underlined.
He also remarked that the financial aid provided to Tbilisi by Washington must be spent, among the rest, on reforms in the electoral environment and on support of the media and various NGOs.
