EU worries about Ivanishvili's fate

2012-07-05 14:48

The EU is concerned of the fate of the leader of the opposition coalition "Georgian Dream" Bidzina Ivanishvili, the head of the EU diplomacy Catherine Ashton said, the ITAR-TASS reported.


"Georgian government is trying to prevent Ivanishvili from participating in the upcoming election. Obviously, in this case, the legislation on political parties financing is being used unilaterally", the head of a European diplomacy said.

June 29, Tbilisi Court did not satisfy Ivanishvili's claim on the restoration of Georgian citizenship. One of the businessman's lawyers, Shalva Tadumadze, has called the court's decision "shameful".

"It was a shameful decision by the court which has clearly shown that the Court was fullfilling illegal orders of the authorities, and was focused on the execution of Saakashvili's orders, not the law", Tadumadze said in an interview with the GHN.

Bidzina Ivanishvili was deprived of Georgian citizenship by decree of President of Georgia in October 2011, a few days after his first political statements. On late December 2011, Tbilisi City Court decided to restore the citizenship of his wife Catherine Khvedelidze, but the order in respect of the oligarch was upheld.
