Released political prisoners demand resignation of Saakashvili2013-01-15 15:53
The Parliament of Georgia has received an appeal from the recently released under the amnesty political prisoners with a demand to impeach president Mikheil Saakashvili, the Echo of the Caucasus reports. According to the edition, this was announced by the human rights defender Nana Kakabadze.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Georgian human rights activist said that "an official statement signed by all 190 released prisoners will be made public today, on 15th of January".
Recall, these days more than three thousand people are leaving the prisons under the amnesty. According to Kakabadse, former political prisoners also demand to declare January 13 "the day of political prisoners", to rename the Occupation Museum into a "Museum of victims of political repression", as well as to launch an objective investigation of their cases.
We reported in early January that Georgian NGOs, standing for early resignation of president Mikheil Saakashvili, collected million signatures in support of this claim.
Though, it is unclear how the authenticity of the signatures, available to the organizers of the campaign, can be confirmed.
The representatives of NGOs, collecting signatures, have held a meeting outside the presidential residence in Tbilisi. They intended to hand the presidential administration a memorandum demanding Saakashvili's resignation, but none of the administration staff has come out to them.
