If the rule of law and equality in US are different, and the Embassy should determine what the rule of law and equality in Georgia should be? – Macharashvili to Degnan

After every speech of the Ambassador, we are convinced that our decision to tell the truth to people is the right one, said MP Guram Macharashvili, who left Georgian Dream, while commenting the statement of US Ambassador to Georgia.

“This statement is actually an acknowledgment that the proofs mentioned in our last letters are true – Kelly Degnan has not responded to any of them and has not presented a counterargument. She addresses the MPs with insulting words, calls them incomprehensible and talks about conspiracies. I wonder what she thinks is a conspiracy - the fact that the representative of the Embassy summoned the judge and demanded a report, and we asked this question, is this a conspiracy?

If the Embassy says that it has paid for the development of Georgian justice for 30 years and therefore appeals to the constitutional bodies - the Parliament and the Supreme Council of Justice, that this or that judge should be appointed for life and that this or that law should be amended, is this a conspiracy?

Besides, in her opinion, Gavrilov’s night was a prerequisite and basis for polarization. It is interesting that she talks about Gavrilov’s night and blames the Government, as if the Government stormed the Parliament. It was Nika Melia who stormed the Parliament together with several hundred radicals, who was arrested and it was at the insistence of the Embassy that the organizer of the storming of the Parliament, the politician Melia, was released from prison.

If the storming of the legislative body is punishable in the US, why is democracy collapsing in Georgia, if a politician who stormed the Parliament is arrested. If the rule of law and equality in the US are different, and the Embassy should determine what the rule of law and equality in Georgia should be, these are wrong approaches, when the Georgian society realizes that democracy works differently in the US, and the Embassy in Georgia wants it to work differently, it is a wrong approach”, - said Guram Macharashvili.
