Georgian MPs fighting
During today's meeting of the Georgian Parliament, a fight occured. As reported by Trend, the representative of the parliamentary majority Akaki Bobokhidze hit in the face representative of former Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli's party "Unity for Democracy" Petre Mamradze.
At today's session of parliament Mamradze Parliament made a statement related to September 27 - the day of the fall of Sukhum and loss of Abkhazia. And he accused Saakashvili of events of 2008.
"...I contend that events of August were Mikhail Saakashvili's provocation ..." - Mamradze said, and not even having time to complete the sentence, received a slap from the Chairman of the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources Akaki Bobokhidze, as "Georgia-News" described.
Legislative police officers soon separated the fight. MPs from the majority addressed Mamradze cries that he "got a call from Moscow" and he "fills the order from Moscow".
After a while Mamradze took the word. "While Georgia has this regime, our country has no prospects either in terms of restoring the territorial integrity or in terms of democracy" - deputy spoke after the fight.
In turn, Bobokhidze later apologized for his action, but stressed that the apology is addressed to the public and not personally to Mamradze.
"I'm not set up to defend Saakashvili, and the criticism against him is normal in a democratic country, and I warn everyone, you can take my MP mandate, but if anyone will appreciate the war in Georgia as a result of provocation of the Georgian authorities, I will answer this similarly" - said Bobokhidze.
Head of Georgian Parliament David Bakradze, watching this entire situation, in turn, called all to exercise restraint.
