The lawyers of Georgian billionaire and politician Bidzina Ivanishvili have accused the Civil Registry Agency of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia of violating the terms of taking the decision on the case of businessman's citizenship.
According to Newsgeorgia.ru, the lawyers have sent an appeal to the Civil Registry Agency on the granting the businessman Georgian citizenship on an expedited basis on January 5.
"Civil Registry Agency has decided that a decision must be taken by February 14, 2012. February 14, the decision on this issue has not been published. It should be noted that to address the issue on an expedited basis, we've paid 200 lari (about $ 121) in accordance with the law", said in the statement of Ivanishvili's secretariat on Wednesday, February 15.
At the same time it was noted that in a telephone conversation the agency employees explained that the decision will be taken by the end of the day.
As reported by IA REGNUM, throughout the day, Ivanishvili's lawyers tried to get an answer from the Civil Registry Agency, but they were just saying that the decision will be ready by the end of the day. Despite this promise, the CRA has not still issued the decision. The lawyers have failed to find the information they need on the agency's website, though according to the informational sheet, the applicants can find the information on the website.
Ivanishvili's lawyers believe that the Civil Registry Agency has violated the law and they're going to react to this fact.
Recall, in 2011, Bidzina Ivanishvili, as well as his wife, was deprived of Georgian citizenship under the direct order of Mikhail Saakashvili. Ivanishvili's lawyers have tried to challenge such decision of the Tbilisi City Court. However, they've managed to cancel this decision only in the part, related to Ivanishvili's wife. Georgian citizenship is necessary to Bidzina Ivanishvili in regard of his decision to enter the politics: without citizenship he can't personally lead the political movement "Georgian Dream", which initially was the social movement.
