Kitsmarishvili: the "Georgian Interior Ministry's studio" fallen on hard times
One of the leaders of the "Georgian Party" Erosi Kitsmarishvili said that accusation of Irakli Okruashvili of plotting a coup are false.
"Obviously, the "Georgian Interior Ministry's studio" fell on very hard times. All of this is simply ridiculous" - "Kommersant" reported the words of opposition leader.
Recall, the Ministry has released a video of confession of several detainees accused of creating armed group, as well as audio recordings of telephone conversations with Okruashvili. In this testimony there was made public information that Okruashvili had intended to return to Georgia with the help of special forces in Russia.
According to a representative of the NDP in parliament Guram Chahvadze, this is not only political issue but also the issue of legal responsibility of Okruashvili and they must demand his extradition from France.
"Based on new reality, Georgia should demand from the French authorities to extradite Okruashvili, and he appear before the Georgian justice" - said a representative of the NDP.
In turn, Erosi Kitsmarishvili also noted that the "Georgian Party" has even refused to conduct any briefings in connection with information published by the Interior Ministry, because "the absurdity of the charges is clear for everyone". He added that Okruashvili has not been to Russia since 2005.
Irakli Okruashvili had previously been one of the supporters of the current Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili. At various times he headed the Interior Ministry, Defense Ministry and the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. Later Okruashvili joined the opposition of the country and was forced to leave its territory.
