American Georgians held a rally against Saakashvili2012-09-26 11:39
About 100 people from Georgia living in the U.S. have gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New York to protest against the government of Mikhail Saakashvili in Tbilisi, the RIA Novosti reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We demand the international community's attention to the murder and torture taking place in Georgia", said one of the organizers of the rally Vakhtang Gomelauri. He believes that after Georgia had spread the footage of torture in Georgian prisons, "each of the Georgians is against Saakashvili's government".
Recall, on 18th of September, the MIA of Georgia posted on its website some of the videos revealing the facts of tortures in Gldani prison in Tbilisi, with the caveat that this was the minimum part of the footage available to the investigation, since the other shots were not allowed for public viewing.
However, on the evening that day, the TV "Maestro" and "Channel Nine" showed the shocking footage of brutal beatings and rape in particular perverted form. The TV channels declared they had full video version of what was happening in the Gldani prison. TV channels reported that they had received it from one of the former prison officer, who was in Belgium to date.
Following the scandal, former Minister of Corrections, Probation and Legal Assistance of Georgia Khatuna Kalmakhelidze and the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Bacho Akhalaia resigned.
