🔷 Chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia called the fact that took place on November 6 in the occupied territory near the village of Kirbali of Gori municipality, which resulted in the loss of life of Georgian citizen Tamaz Gunturi, appalling.
The chairman of the political group believes that yesterday’s incident is a continuation of the great calamity that befell Georgia during the August 2008 war.
🔷 According to the MP, yesterday’s fact once again makes it clear that it is necessary and necessary to investigate and investigate all aspects of the events of the August 2008 war.
🔷 “I cannot help responding to yesterday’s horrifying fact. Another of our compatriots was killed. First of all, I would like to express my condolences to the family of the deceased and to the whole of Georgia.
🔷 Criminals should be punished. Whoever does not want to take it. Those who contribute to the loss of innocent lives.
🔷 A few months ago, we initiated a proposal to create an investigative commission regarding the events of the August 2008 war. “Yesterday’s fact is one of the manifestations of the tragic events that started from 2008 until today, and nobody knows what will happen tomorrow,” said Fridon Injia.
🔷 The MP believes that it should be investigated as soon as possible who committed the crime and temporarily removed its indigenous region from Georgia. The ruling party should make a decision and support the creation of an investigative commission. All criminals must be exposed.
🔷 “I believe that it should be promptly investigated who committed the crime and temporarily separated this region from Georgia, where the situation is uncontrolled and people’s lives are still being lost. This issue should be resolved as soon as possible. The ruling party should make a decision and support the creation of an investigative commission. All criminals must be exposed. May God grant that ways will be found, be it a format of dialogue or other methods, except by force, so that such calamity does not happen again in Georgia,” said the deputy.
🔷 The chairman of the political group blames the previous government for the events of the August 2008 war.
🔷 “This is the responsibility of the “National Movement”, which was in power in 2008. It was because of their indolence and in many cases their criminal actions that what happened happened. They could not prevent the country from war, nor did they take measures that would not lead to this tragic outcome. Therefore, it is necessary to establish the truth, what was the reason, what decisions and based on whose decisions a number of districts, villages, cities were transferred to the Russian Federation”. – said the deputy.
🔷 According to Fridon Injia, in the context of the creation of the temporary parliamentary investigative commission, there is no discussion of the decision made by the Hague International Court regarding the 2008 war. Here are the aspects and issues on which the Hague International Court has not discussed and has not made a decision.
🔷 “We are not referring to the Hague International Court, we are referring to and are interested in, for example, how the surrender of Kodori Gorge, the surrender of Akhalgori, the transfer of the equipment that our partners – the United States of America, or various European countries – gave to Georgia. The creation of the commission is necessary and necessary so that this government does not make similar mistakes and our future knows who was guilty.
“The international court has not investigated how our military forces left Kodori, who gave the order, how Akhalgori was handed over to the Russian Federation, how our fellow citizens died.” – noted the deputy.
🔷 The chairman of the political group believes that by all parameters and arguments, Georgia should have received the candidate status a year ago, but Georgia could not receive the candidate status due to various reasons. This reason was primarily political.
🔷 “It was a political decision not to give Georgia the status of a candidate country for the European Union. I think that the European Union and its member countries had an opportunity to think that Georgia is really a key country in Transcaucasia, and the summit held in Tehran a few days ago (3+3 format) and the information that was announced there, that without Georgia It becomes impossible to implement such global projects as “One Belt One Road” in the form of the Middle Corridor project, or global development projects adopted in Transcaucasia and our region in the “3+3 format”.
🔷 Therefore, giving Georgia the status of a candidate country is one of the most important things for Georgia to continue its progress and development,” Fridon Injia believes.
🔷 In response to the journalist’s question, why there is a difference of opinion in the radical opposition regarding the granting of EU candidate country status to Georgia, Fridon Injia said that the radical opposition
The process of lustration is disturbed, which will continue in the future.
🔷 “Representatives of the radical opposition often change their thoughts and positions. They felt some positive changes regarding the granting of candidate status and immediately changed their position. Self-lustration took place and I am sure that some time will pass and there will be more self-lustration facts, not just one. The same can be said about the “national movement”, where they are divided into groups and their politics are clearly visible, because they do not have a leader. Their leader is in prison and he has no prospect of release yet. Therefore, everyone there considers themselves a leader.” – said the deputy.
