Saakashvili intends to veto the Georgian law on amnesty2012-12-28 12:42
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is going to veto the amnesty law passed by the parliament and providing the release of more than two thousand five hundred prisoners, the RBC reports. He said this at a meeting with young people in Tbilisi.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to him, the amnesty law applies to "Russian spies", the military trying to arrange a military coup in Georgia, and pedophiles not subject to recovery.
First, Saakashvili's concerned about a reduction of the sentence of a large category of persons convicted of various crimes (in particular, of sex abuse of minors). "Among those released there are pedophiles, and let the MPs take responsibility for their decision, and I'm not going to pardon these people, because I do not accept such an indiscriminate approach", the president said.
Another Saakashvili's concern us related to the release of "political prisoners", a list which was recently approved by the parliament, the Lenta.ru reported. "I want to tell everyone - I hope that these people were released to spite me, at someone else's request. Because if you massively release Russian agents, what no country ever does, this is done either to spite me, or directly by the order of Russia. I am going to veto this bill because I do not want the head of Georgia to be decapitated", said Saakashvili.
