TBC, Liberty and Alfa Bank

სააკაშვილი გამოხატავს „სინანულს“ რაღაცის „არასწორად თქმის“ გამო

2013.03.04 02:13
TBC ბანკი დაLiberty ბანკი რუსულ ბანკებს უნდა მიჰყიდონ: მართლა? გასულ კვირას საქართველოში საინტერესო ინფორმაციამ გაიჟღერა. არჩევნებში დამარცხებულმა პრეზიდენტმა სააკაშვილმა განაცხადა, რომ TBCბანკი და Libertyბანკი მალე რუსული ბანკების საკუთრება გახდებოდა, თუმცა მალევე Liberty ბანკმა Facebook-ის გვერდზე გამოქვეყნა განცხადება, რომელშიც ნათქვამია, რომ გავრცელებული ინფორმაცია სიმართლეს არ შეესაბამებოდა. მოგვიანებით TBC ბანკმა იგივე გაიმეორა. ეს იყო სააკაშვილის უცნაური შეცდომა, რომლის ინტერესშიც რატომღაც შედის მსგავსი ხმების გავრცელება. როდესაც პრეს კონფერენციის ბოლოს სააკაშვილს აცნობეს, რომ ბანკებმა ინფორმაციის უარყვეს, მან განაცხადა, რომ ის იქნებოდა მოხარული თუკი მისი ინფორმაცია აღმოჩნდებოდა მცდარი, თუმცა მაინც დასძინა, რომ ეს ინფორმაცია რეალური იყო, რომელიც მან ეროვნული ბანკისგან მიიღო. რა თქმა უნდა პრეზიდენტი დარწმუნებული იყო ამ ამბის სიმართლეში, ვინაიდან იგი მისი უახლოესი მეგობრების მიერ იყო ინფორმირებული. მოგვიანებით TBCბანკმა განაცხადა: „საქართველოს პრეზიდენტმა ახლახანს გააკეთა სატელევიზიო განცხადება, თითქოს რუსეთის უმსხვილესმა ბანკმა „Alfa“–მ შეისყიდა TBC ბანკის აქციები, ჩვენ გვინდა ოფიციალურად განვაცხადოთ, რომ არანაირი მოლაპარაკებები რუსულ ან ნებისმიერი სხვა ბანკებთან არ მიმდინარეობს და მსგავსი არც უახლოეს მომავალშია მოსალოდნელი.“
მიშა სულაც არ არის სულელი, უბრალოდ მას სურს თავი ყველაზე „ანტი-რუსულ“
ადამიანად წარმოაჩინოს, რაც მისი აზრით საზოგადოების მხარდაჭერას მოუტანს
და დაეხმარება კვლავ დაიბრუნოს ძალაუფლება, რომელიც მან ოქტომბერში
გამართული არჩევნების შედეგად დაკარგა, ამის განხორციელებას კი იგი
ახლანდელი მთვრობის ხალხის თვალში კრემლის დივიზიის წარმომადგენლად
წარმოჩენით ცდილობს. მას აღარ აქვს პრეტენზია იყოს საქართველოს და
ქართველი ხალხის პრეზიდენტი და ყველაფერს აკეთებს რათა „კოჰაბიტაცია“
განახორციელოს ახლანდელ მთვრობასთან, რომელიც ქართველმა ხალხმა
სააკაშვილის ნების საწინააღმდეგოდ აირჩია.

დამარხული საიდუმლოებები
TBC ყველაზე სოლიდურ და უსაფრთხო ბანკად მოიაზრება საქართველოში, თუმცა ის
მაინც საიდუმლოებითაა მოცული და არავის სურს მათი გამომჟღავნება, ვინაიდან
ეს მისი მფარველებისათვის დიდი დარტყმა იქნება, მაგრამ თუ საქართველოს
ნამდვილად სურს დემოკრატია, მაშინ მან შესაბამის ინსტიტუციებს ადრე თუ
გვიან ყველაფერზე პასუხი უნდა მოკითხოს. ერთ-ერთი საკითხი, რომელიც დღესაც დგას არის ბადრი პატარკაციშვილისა და
ჯორჯ სოროსის საქმე. რა იყიდა სოროსმა ბანკში და შემდეგ რა გამოისყიდა?
ან რატომ იყიდა პატარკაციშვილმა ის , რაც სოროსმა გაყიდა? თავის დროზე
ამბობდნენ, რომ თითქოს ეს ტრანსაქციები იმ დროინდელ Sistema-სთან, რუსულ
საგამოძებო სამსახურთან და რუსულ და აღმოსავლურ ბანკებთან იყო კავშირში.
Sistema-ს მთვარი მენეჯერი პასუხს აგებდა საქართველოსთან დაკავშირებულ
საბანკო სექტორზე ,მას შესწავლილი ჰქონდა ფინანსები ამერიკაში და ზოგჯერ
მუშაობდა კიდეც ამერიკულ ბანკებთან. ამ პიროვნებას მოსკოვის ყოფილ მერთან
იური ლუჟკოვთანაც ჰქონდა გარკვეული კავშირები .

აუცილებელი გავიაზროთ რა გავლენა იქონია პრეზიდენტ შევარდნაძის გადაყენებამ რუსეთის გავლენის სფეროებზე (პოლიტიკაში, ბიზნესში, საგამომძიებლო და სპეციალურ სამსახურებში), ის თუ რაოდენ მაღალ ინსტიტუციონალიზებული იყო ეს კავშირები, რომლებიც ამასთანავე დაკავშრებულნი იყვნენ ორგანიზებულ დანაშაულებთან. ზოგიერთი მათგანი კვლავ განაგრძობდა ვარდების რევოლუცის შემდგომ მოსულ მთვრობასთან თანამშრომლობას, თუმცა ამასთნავე ისინი საკუთარ ძალებსაც იმაგრებდნენ ქვეყანაში. მათ კვლავ შესთვაზეს ახალ მთვრობას ის ძველი წინადადებები, რომლებიც შევარდნაძისთვის უინტერესო იყო და სააკაშვილის მმართველობის პერიოდში, თამაშის წესებიც შეიცვალა. საქართველომ ფართოდ გაუღო კარი ბიზნესს და მალევე ის დაყოლიებულ იქნა საეჭვო კომპანიების მიერ თავიანთი ბინძური მოტივაციებით, რომელთა უმეტესობაც იგივე კორუმპირებული კავშრების მიერ იყო მართვადი.

მოტივაციები

სააკაშვილის სიტყვების შემდგომ , მრავალი განცხადება რომელიც ამ ქალაქში
თქმულა ან ნახევრად მართალია, ან მთლიანად ტყუილი. მედია ავრცელებს ბინძურ
ჭორებს და ამასობაში სააკაშვილის PR მანქანა ანადგურებს ბიზნესის იმიჯს
საქართველოში, როდესაც ამგვარი ისტორიების სუბიექტები ხდებიან ბანკები,
ამით როგორც ქვეყნის ბიზნეს კლიმატი, ასევე ეროვნული უსაფრთხოებაც
ზიანდება. საქართველოს პრეზიდენტი ცდილობს გაანადგუროს ბანკები და
დაარწმუნოს ინვესტორები რომ მათგან თავი შორს დაიჭიროს… სააკაშვილს სურს
გააკოტროს ბანკები, რათა შემდგონში მის კართან დგომა მოუწიოთ
მათხოვრებივით დასახმარებლად.

კარგად დაზეთილი PR მანქანა
სააკაშვილის სიტყვებმა მთელი მსოფლიო მოიცვა და ახლა პრეზიდენტი თავისი კარგად დაზეთილი PR მანქანითა და ნაციონალური მოძრაობის მეშვეობით ცდილობს რაც შეიძლება მეტი ზიანი მიაყენოს ქვეყანას რათა დაამარცხოს ახლანდელი მთვრობა. ყველასათვის კარგადაა ცნობილი ნაციონალების ტაქტიკა, მათ შორის ამერიკის ელჩისთვისაც. სააკაშვილი ძალიან დაძაბულია წარსული ცოდვების გამო და სწორედ ამიტომ ის დიდ საფრთხეს წარმოადგენს არა ქვეყნისთვის, არამედ საკუთარი თავისთვის და მათთვის ვინც მას მწარე დასასრულამდე უჭერს მხარს.
მანამ სანამ მსგავსი სიცრუე ვრცელდება, სისულელეა თანამშრომლობაძე საუბარი. აუცილებელია გამოძების ჩატარება რათა გაირკვეს, თუ საიდან წამოვიდა დეზინფორმაცია ამ ბანკების გაყიდვასთან დაკავშირებით. ლომის წვლილი ამ დანერგილ მითქმა-მოთქმაში პრეზიდენტის უახლოეს მოკავშირეებს მიუძღვით. ბევრმა საერთშორისო მისიებმა და საფინანსო ორგანიზაციებმა იციან: მისი პარანოია ჯერ კიდევ დაუკმაყოფილებელია.
სააკაშვილს თანდაყოლილი თვისება აქვს თავის უმანკოდ წარმოჩენის და საშიში
გადაწყვეტილებების მიღების. მისი განცხადებები ბანკების შესახებ არის
სისულელე და ეს პარანოია პრეს–კონფერენციის დროსვე გამომჟღვნდა.
წინა დღეს ნაციონალური მოძრაობის PR მანქანა მწყობრიდან გამოვიდა
როდესაც მიშა ჩახტა თავის მანქანაში და ცოლთან ერთად გავარდა

What was ever investigated, Khudoni Dam and Offshore Mechanisms

Khudoni Dam and British Virgin Islands

As water swirls – so goes the political intrigue of the Georgian
business climate. Take for instance a massive hydro station project that
has been on hold for years; it is now being renewed under what some may
consider as mysterious and less than transparent circumstances. 

The proposed 201 metre Khudoni Hydro Power Plant construction is planned
for high mountains of west Georgia (2010 metres above sea level) on the
River Enguri. This is the source of water where the Enguri dam already
operates. However, something bigger is in the works, and it dates back
to the period of the Soviet Union and its centralized planning efforts
that make extensive use of the Enguri River’s vast water resources for
power generation. The proposed Khudoni project was until recently on
hold, almost forgotten by all those involved stakeholders, even those in
government and environmentalists, and those who are really suppose to be
in the know.

Mikheil Saakashvili, (and after Zurab Zhvania died under mysterious
circumstances) and while in government, the former PM was a staunch
environmentalist), and the Georgian government in 2005 revised the
Soviet project and began seeking outside investors. In 2007, a group of
Indian businessmen visited the Khudoni site in the Upper Svaneti region,
and gave the Georgian energy ministry a clear commitment to complete the
project.  The group represented a company called “Transelectric”, which
is owned by British and Indian investors, and registered in the Virgin
Islands.

Based on these promises, the Georgian government awarded the investors
the rights to build Khudoni with a price tag of 800 million USD. There
was no tender, no bidding competition or any such similar arrangement. One would have thought that they would have done one this for show, for
the sake of transparency and accountability, especially in the reform
minded government that came into power in the post 2003 Rose Revolution
period. 

In short, the Georgian public, as well as parliamentarians, are in the
dark as to who all are behind the biggest hydropower project currently
in their country, and even within the Energy ministry little is known
about it. There seems to have been a kind of lull after the rights to
build the dam were awarded in 2007. The energy ministry had the
impression that the group had abandoned its promises for some time.

As of now, construction work may start in 2011 and take four to five
years to complete. The dam will be 201 m tall, consisting of 170 m tall
concrete arches, and lays about two thousand meters above sea level. The
generators will be able to deliver 700 MW output, which is fairly large
in an international context, and per year estimated to produce 1.5
billion kWh of energy. 

Environmental and social impact: six villages and about a thousand
people will be displaced. The Khudoni HPP would intensify the
devastation of forests and wildlife habitat, the loss of river species
populations and the degradation of upstream catchments areas owing to
the flooding of the reservoir area in one of the most amazing highland
regions of Georgia. There are serious environmental concerns, both in
terms of changed ecosystem (forests) and change in the flow of the
river. Environmentalists think it will result in catastrophic
consequences to the local habitat. 

There is also question as where much of the profits for the export of
electricity will go when the company is registered as an offshore
company. Others think it is a good thing that Transelectric is able to
build it in a careless fashion without competition and proper oversight,
as getting it quickly up and running will further increase the country’s
capacity for export of electricity and to make up for a lost in foreign
direct investment and in light of less than a shiny business
environment.

Time to ask hard questions about death of Zurab Zhvania, was it murder?

FBI agent’s involvement in the cover-up of Zurab Zhvania’s likely murder

Это не только твоя подруга, она подруга для всех ! !

FBI-მ დაფარა ჟვანიას მკვლელობა
როგორც უკვე ცნობილი გახდა მას მედიის საშუალებით ზურაბ ჟვანიას სიკვდილის საქმე თავიდან იქნება გამოძიებული. გთხოვ, თუკი გაქვს ისეთი მასალა ამ საქმესთან დაკავშირებით რომელიც გამოძიებას გამოადგება არ დაიზარო და გადაეცი მათ ეს მასალა. დაეხმარე გამოძიებას სიმართლის დადაგენაში. მე ვიცი შენ ჩვენი ქვეყნისთვიs მხოლოდ კარგი გინდა.ეს სიმართლე არ დაიმალება და ასე უკეთესი იქნება ორივე ქვეყნისთვის.
“As is known already from the TV the investigation into Zurab Zhvania’s death will be reopened. I kindly ask that if you have information which is of any assistance to the investigation please do not hesitate, do cooperate with the investigation. Please help them find the truth; I know that you wish only good for our country. This will be for the good for both countries; the truth cannot be covered up forever.”

“Let Georgia’s PM be sacrificed for more important issues.”
… now is the time to ask hard questions about PM Zurab Zhvania
Jeffrey Silverman – Tbilisi Georgia
It was an accident – or so it was called, the tragic event of February
3, 2005: the ‘accidental’ death by ‘gas poisoning’ of Zurab Zhvania,
aged 41, the Georgian Prime Minister. But I am not one to believe in
such a fate, especially in the light of all the media spin surrounding
the case, and how many Georgians politicians and potential leaders, such
as Merab Kostava, Giorgi Chanturia, Zviad Gamsakhurdia, Badri
Patarkatsishvili etc., have died before their time.
Many examples can be found in other countries of Prime Ministers dying
prematurely in office. Most of these deaths can hardly be considered
accidents. In the case of Zurab Zhvania, I suggest that there is more
to the matter than the official record shows – or will ever show!

Up next – the investigation into the possible murder and cover up of the
then serving Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania in 2005. These are kind of
things which make Misha’s attempts to cling onto power before the
election, and his now (treasonable?) attempts to destabilize his own
country by continually trying to undermine the new government with
pieces like this completely understandable. He and his dwindling band of
thieves are desperately trying to escape justice for their crimes, is
murder another crime that some will seek to escape? When Boris Ivanishvili, broke onto the political scene he said that he
would establish a level of democracy in Georgia which would “astonish”
Europe. His problem is that he really wants to do that and the only
thing which is in his way are attitudes such as those of the EU/US/NATO
officials who can see that he means “real” democracy and that to do that
he MUST root out all of the bad guys, corruption & nepotism which are
the first barriers he and his team face.

Legal attaché of the U.S. Embassy

“OK, let’s see” – I cannot provide the names of the contract killers identified to me by a representative of Ajarian Police Intelligence some years ago at this time, and I was not a witness to Zhvania’s death, but the behavior of the US Embassy of this raises many questions, as it is very, very suspicious. I hope to conduct an interview with Giorgi, Zurab Zhvania’s brother, soon – share some information; I had been waiting for my translator to get back from Europe and connect, and it is again wait – this is Georgia. My immediate plan is to go and talk to the neighbors of FBI agent Bryan
Paarmann, former legal attaché to the U.S. Embassy at the time, who was
centre stage in several breaking news stories during his short but
eventful tenure in Tbilisi. I want to learn more about his colorful
time in Tbilisi. I already know how Brian spent his leisure time – he
was a regular at various strip clubs, chased young sex workers and hung
out in the Western bars, Hanger and Smugglers, notorious as sleazy
commercial sex outlets. Another one of his favorite places was the
Striptease Club across the street from Public TV, First Channel,
“Pirveli Arkhi” in the Saburtalo region. I used to work there, at the TV
station that is!!!

The Smugglers Bar, now out of business, is where this story originated
back in 2005. This was the popular “rent-a-chick bar” frequented by US
Embassy staff members and others working in the NGO community – and one
of Brian’s favorite watering hole. I also understand from former bar
staff there, and others in Tbilisi, that he finally caught one of the
fine ladies of Russian origin he had been chasing – or it might be
better said that she caught him; both are now living happily ever after
in the United States as man and wife.

I starting investigating Bryan Paarmann after one of his former
girlfriends, let’s call her Eka, a Georgian, and others who knew him
personally from 2005 on-wards starting spilling the beans. I learned
that this FBI agent had especially arranged for Eka to be fired from her
job so that he would force her to be financially dependent on him. She
was not, to say the least, a member of his fan club – perhaps she had
high hopes for romance, and America as the final reward for putting up
with his antics – but another woman came along and pushed her aside.

Eka told me, when all this was still fresh, that she was almost certain
that he was involved in covering up Zurab Zhvania’s murder. “I don’t
know if Bryan was directly involved in the murder but I know for certain
that she was involved in covering it up.” I could not simply take her statements at face value, but Eka also told
me small details about his life, motivations, about him growing up in
Mississippi, being a graduate of West Point (the American Military
Academy) and how he was adopted and had eventually gone crazy over some
Russian woman, Victoria, the competitor who ultimately became his wife. Her story checked out.

A few weeks earlier I had made a joke to Bryan Paarmann in front of his
American Embassy friends about his new girlfriend’s profession. I had
tracked him down a few days after he had had me kidnapped off the street
and beaten by Georgian Security. To try to change the direction of our
conversation, being there in front of many Embassy staffers in
Smugglers, he introduced his soon-to-be-wife, as his girlfriend. I
sarcastically responded, after eyeing her over from head to toe [я
смерил её глазом с ног до головы ], “Это не только твоя подруга, она
подруга для всех – “not only your girlfriend but everybody’s
girlfriend!”

We had been in the middle of a heated discussion over things he had been
doing which were apparently related to Zhvania’s death, having me picked
up and beaten after I had crossed the border from Azerbaijan on my old
Georgian passport. I had learned this favor was done on his his personal
request, or perhaps it came from one of his higher ups, I had been under
close surveillance for some time; I had already been grabbed in the
middle of the street and pushed into a car in broad daylight on the way
to work one morning a few days before – in front of my Georgian wife’s
neighbors and others who knew me. The motivation was clear, as I was
writing some interesting articles in this period. As for the motivation for this, it is hard to say: I had been digging
into the activities of American funded NGOs in East Georgia, ostensibly
rural credit unions, ACDI/VOCA,, and how the US government was funding
Chechen fighters, “Boyeviks”, under the guise of a “Food for Peace
Program” being conducted under the auspices of the United States
Department of Agriculture in Georgia. The rural credit program was
being used as a slush fund to buy weapons and provide financial support
for Chechens operating out of the Pankisi Gorge in East Georgia. I had
also visited some Azeri villages in East Georgia and had perhaps been
asking too many questions about Raul Yusupov, the Deputy Governor of the
Kvemo-Kartli region. He too was found dead with Zurab Zurab on that same
dreadful day.

Through my contacts in the US Embassy and intelligence community,
especially friends in the French Embassy, I was able to track down Bryan
to have a face-to-face discussion about why he had had me grabbed off
the street and beaten at the office of Georgian counterintelligence
organization SOD, the “Modulis Shenoba” on Vajza Pshavela Avenue. Paarmann, being very arrogant, started out by admitting to having had me
“picked up” off the street – to see what I was doing, and suggesting
that I come to the Embassy and talk to him. He then continued by mocking
my articles, published in “Azerbaijan Today”, a regional magazine, about
US foreign policy. I was its Editor-in-Chief at the time.

Bryan Paarmann said, “I have read your fucking articles (sic) and I know
more about your life than you know yourself, and at least you are not a
pedophile (someone who likes young children).” He added, “If you were a
threat I would have you put on a flight back to the US in chains, but I
guess it is your Constitutional right to write such articles.” These
articles were not very complementary of the policies of the George Bush
Jr. Administration, or his intellectual abilities, and predicated his
eventual failure.

The argument ended when his FBI partner, who was drunk at the time,
attacked me over my remark about Bryan’s Russian beauty, as he
understood what I had said in Russian, – “not only your girlfriend but
everybody’s girlfriend!” He took a swing and hit a beer bottle I was
holding, chipping my teeth and splashing the beer in my face.

This man was at least half my age and about twice my size. In reaction,
and without thinking, I broke a beer bottle over his head, and soon only
the glass neck of the bottle remained in my hand, blood and beer mixed
together splattering the floor and wall of the bar. The agent ended up
on the floor in a pool of blood. Incidentally, Bryan had bought me the
beer.

Those in the Georgian National Security Agency and other investigative
bodies thought it funny that Americans were going after one another,
like in the movies, both of us being former US Army. However, they
refused to do anything about it, and Georgian witnesses would not say
anything, much to the disappointment of the US Embassy staff, who were
trying to push the issue – the Georgian side apparently knew this was
something that smelled very bad “dampali” – something they didn’t want
to stir too much (არ გაქექოს ნაგავი/მძღნერი). Their request for action
went as high as the Georgian National Security Council, and the incident
was the talk of the town for a while, but it was soon forgotten,
especially after Bryan left Georgia for Ukraine.

To cut a long story short: FBI Agent Bryan Paarmann’s three-year
contract to work in Georgia was soon terminated or cut short, as he was
sent, apparently shipped off, to Ukraine, perhaps as a means of damage
control, not related to our encounter but more likely related to the
press over the PM and the Iranian gas heater. Within the next year he
back to the US. Incidentally, coincidence or not, he was subsequently
promoted to a very high position at FBI Headquarters, the J. Edgar
Hoover Building, in Washington DC.

This career move may be related to Zurab Zhvania’s case, or him being
the key investigator of the so-called murder attempt on George W. Bush.
The so called murder attempt on GWB was yet another stage performance,
at least in my opinion as part of the circus that is Georgia; such
things are scripted, and by outsiders. I have my doubts about the
official version, and I am not the only one. The last I heard, Bryan
had married the Russian, Victoria, although some claim that she was
never officially divorced. They are now living happily ever after in the
United States; good riddance to them both!

I also suspect that his removal/promotion to the US was related to all
the things Paarmann had been involved with here in Tbilisi, the PR – as
a “media spin doctor” – claiming that an Iranian gas heater was at
fault in Zhvania’s death, when talking to the media a few days later.

The deadly beast in question is sometimes referred to as a “badly
installed Iran-made heater” or an “Iranian heater that was recently
installed ignoring safety codes,” but, oddly, when a Georgian official
is speaking, they inevitably bring up the fact that the heater was from
Iran, as if that country itself is somehow to blame. Even back then it
appeared that all those talking were on the payroll of George W. Bush,
milking this divine opportunity to subliminally paint Iran in a bad
light.
PART 2

Do Americans often gas their politicians? ხშირად წამლავენ გაზით ამერიკელები თავიანთ პოლიტიკოსებს?

Bryan Paarmann, the legal attaché of the U.S. Embassy in Georgia, even
told one journalist who I know professionally, and who occasionally
works with me, that it was “certainly a gas heater” at fault and was not
foul play (murder), and how many people die this way in the United
States each year.
THIS WILL NEED TO BE TRANSLATION

თუმცა როდესაც ჟვანია გარდაიცვალა, მე ის ვნახე ქართულ
ტელევიზიებში , როგორ აძლევდა კომენტარს , როგორც საქართველოში
მოღვაწე ეფბიაის აგენტი და განმარტავდა, რომ გაზით მოწამვლის
შემთხვევები ასევე ხშირია ისეთ ქვეყანაშიც კი როგორიც
ამერიკაა.
მას შემდეგ რაც მე და ჩემმა მეგობრმა ვნახეთ და მოვისმინეთ მისი კომენტარი, ჩვენ მას დავუკავშირდით და ამის შემდეგ ერთხელ შევგვხდა , შეხვედრის დროს მე მას ვუთხარი რომ ჟვანიას გარდაცვალების დეტალები ძალიან ბუნდოვანი, საეჭვეო, იყო და რომ ამ ფაქტის ირგვლივ უამრავი პასუხგაუცემელი კითხვები იყო. დეტალურად არ მახსოვს ის არგუმენტები რომელიც მასთან მომყავდა . რაზეც მან მიპასუხა , რომ მე საკმაოდ ახალგაზრდა და ბავშვიც კი ვიყავი და რომ ასეთ რაღაცეებს ვერ მივხდებოდი …., და მისი არგუმენტიც და პასუხიც თითქმის იგივე იყო რაც, სატელევიზიო კომენტარში.
თუმცა მას შემდეგ რაც მე მას პირდაპირ მივახალე ის რასაც ძალიან ბევრი ადამაინი ფიქრობდა იმ პერიოდში და იმ ეჭვებზეც ვესაუბრე რაც არსებობდა , ცოტა არ იყოს შემეშინდა მისი თანამდებობიდან გამომდინარე და გადავწვიტე ბოლოს მისთვის საამებელი სიტყვები მეთქვა და ასეთი რამ ვუთხარი , რომ მისი კომენტარი უფრო დამაჯერებელი იყო ვიდრე იმდროინდელი შინაგან საქმეთა მინისტრის ვანო მერაბიშვილის , რაც მას ძალიან ესიამოვნა. გარკვეული ხანი ჩვენ გვქონდა კონტაქტი, თუმცა მოგვიანებით როცა მან გაიგო, რომ მე ჟურნალისტად დავიწყე მუშოაბა მას , ის აღარ დამკონტაქტებია. Bryan Paarmann also announced to the media on Georgian TV that American
forensic experts had found no evidence that contradicted the initial
conclusions of their Georgian colleagues and there was “no reason
whatsoever to allege that a third party was involved in the incident.”
Cover up worse than the crime!

In the final analysis, the cover-up may prove even more revealing than
the crime itself. Why were they so quick to come to the conclusion about
the gas heater, and it being an accident – even without going into all
that cloak and dagger stuff?! Some years later I learned that the FBI
in the United States had been involved in my own case – either due to me whacking an FBI agent on the head with a beer bottle or because of
my revealing articles – or perhaps a combination of motives, but
certainly they had been checking up on me in the United States.
My 22-year old son’s mother wrote to me, “I had two FBI agents visit me
at my job in Kentucky. One was Detective Greg Wolf and the other was Mr.
Steve Auvenshine. They came to my work site and told me they were
investigating you but wouldn’t tell me why. They asked numerous
questions about you and what you did for a living. “They showed me a picture of you and asked if it was you. They asked me questions about how we met, where you have lived, where you were born, who your parents were and what did they do for a living, whether they were still alive or not, what countries you had visited, what languages you spoke, how long you had visited each country, what religion you practiced and if you had ever been in the military. I asked them why they were asking so many questions about you but they would not say. I think they already knew all the answers to all the questions they asked me; I think they just wanted to see if I would verify what they knew. They also wanted me to send all the e-mails that you had sent me to them. Bourbon County [the local authority] said that they were already sending all the e-mails they receive from you to the US State Department.”

Zurab Zhvania had one saving grace (მას ერთი უპირატესობა ჰქონდა): his
consistent belief in the value of stability and Georgian statehood at
all costs. Ironically enough, many in Georgia, including myself, think
it was this desire – to preserve stability-at all costs, and do what was
in the best interests of Georgia – which probably got him murdered. One
thing is certain, what little I know about Zurab Zhvania, or what I
know about Georgia and US foreign policy, has raised some flags (with
the US Embassy and with the intelligence community back in the United
States).

Terminator on the rampage in Georgia? Zurab Zhvania, et.al.

Murdered with three gunshot wounds in Tbilisi

Terminator, US Embassy, on the rampage in Georgia?

Jeffrey Silveman November 23, Tbilisi Georgia – 43-year-old Avtandil Aduashvili was found
murdered this night in the back seat of his vehicle, ML class Mercedes
on Zaziashvili Street. The murdered had three gunshot wounds. The
locals say they didn’t hear the gunshots (it sounds like his body was
taken and left where it was found).

I think this guy was in the construction and restaurant business. I don’t know any more than that – just made me think a little about this
case, which is also somehow related to an ownership issue with the
Buddah Bar just across the river, where they’re building that “Time
Tunnel” for Misha, Vano, and Gigi to escape to the past.

How curious that another person called Avtandil Aduashvili drowned in
Gori in July. Maybe there’s a kind of “Terminator” thing going on, and
there’s more to this Time Tunnel on Rike park than meets the eye. Maybe
they manage to go back and figure out that “someone” called Avtandil
Aduashvili must be eliminated for them to escape punishment for their
sins, so a terminator has come forward in time and is bumping off anyone
called Avtandil Aduashvili?

I think they’re going to string Merabishvili along a bit and try to make
him sweat. Fat Misha already looks like a sweaty fat pig – and his
hair’s going very gray now too.

They thought they had it all and resorted to such dirty tactics during
the election campaigning period because they were petrified of the
consequences if they lost, and everything they were afraid of is now
coming to pass. They haven’t really started on the shonky deals (of dubious integrity or
legality) deals with mysterious companies which were set up to bid for
all these state tenders yet, or the big “murder” cases (Zurab Zhvania,
Buta Robakidze and Sandro Girgvliani). It is all starting to float to the top – sit back folks and enjoy the
show! YouTube – Videos from this email

Clearing up the mess in Georgia – in spite of outside interference! Philip Gordon and his Rasmussen!!!

“it’s a dirty job but it’s got to be done – just make sure you do it
properly and make it look good”
Phillip Gordon came here with his eyes wide open, fully aware, and he
would have been properly briefed (informed) by the US Ambassador who, as
we have seen, has been an almost daily visitor to Ivanishvili and cannot
possibly have been taken by surprise by these arrests. I think the
message from the Americans is clear: “it’s a dirty job but it’s got to
be done – just make sure you do it properly and make it look good”.
As for others, Jose Barroso is just a complete cock who would side (take
the side) with the devil if it kept that stupid smug look on his face a
while longer, as are the rest of his EPP buddies who keep voting him
back in, e.g. Wilfried Martens and not forgetting that the UNM
themselves are affiliated to the EPP, as is John McCain’s International
Republican Institute, IRI.
I think Mr. Rasmussen was just taken in (fooled) by Saakashvili, to be
honest. The NATO Sec. General is naturally more detached from the
reality of life in Georgia. Perhaps James Appathurai, Deputy Assistant
Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy and NATO
Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central
Asia, could have helped him prepare better so I’m sure some questions
need to be asked within NATO itself as there was a marked change in tone
from Rasmussen after he’d met with Ivanishvili.
I’m sure the Americans (State Department) know that the really big fish
are yet to be fried and the impeachment process has recently been
explained by the GYLA, Georgian Young Lawyers Association (someone
must’ve asked them?) but we may have to wait a while before we see any
direct moves against Saakashvili and Merabishvili. Pretty soon they’ll be the only ones left anyway, not arrested but under
threat. I’m not so sure about Gigi Ugulava – I think his little stunt
where he tried to gatecrash the ministerial meeting may have moved him
up the batting order – and his days may be numbered too!
There’s little doubt that they’re all on the same list – powerful people
who thought they were untouchable. They only have such a voice now
because they still managed to rig the election somewhat – nobody likes
them (except themselves) and the more moderate UNM MPs would do well to
distance themselves from them and join the splinter group of
independents and think about their own political careers.
What we’re seeing happening is the dissection of a regime which kept
themselves and their friends in houses and whores through intimidation,
fear, torture, sexual abuse, theft of property, political persecution,
corruption, and control of the media… you name it, they did it.
It’s a bit rich of them (arrogant) complaining about getting caught.
They are acting as a bunch of cry babies. We have an expression in
America: “if you can’t do the time then don’t do the crime.”
I see they’re going to charge Dato Akhalaia in absentia. Do they have
family rooms in prison? They’ll need a suite if they can pin anything on
Roland – the Godfather of that clan.
NB – for Georgian Readers: Pin anything on – that means – to prove a
person guilty of something, in American legal slang – jailhouse law
dictionary

Bacho Akhalaia may “squeal like a pig” and loose-lips-sink-ships

Sounds like they’ve gone straight for Bacho’s jugular – the restaurant
incident

As Akhalia’s lawyer Ioseb Janashia told InterPressNews, the case is
about the incident that took place in a restaurant. The lawyer doesn’t
specify the details, though says that Bacho Akhalaia doesn’t plead
guilty.

143rd article is quite serious, which carries about 12 year in prison,
Ioseb Janashia said.
http://www.interpressnews.ge/en/politics/42138-bacho-akhalaia-receives-charge…
Rather a muted statement there, following all the squealing of the past
couple of days.

The 4th part of the 143rd article of The Criminal Code of Georgia:
4. The action stipulated in Paragraphs 1 or 2 of this Article:
a) by an organized group;
b) that through negligence has claimed the life of the victim or has
given rise to any other grave consequence, – shall be punishable by
prison sentences ranging from eight to fifteen years in prison.
If this refers to the Sandro Girgvliani case then it begs the question –
will Vano Merabishvili and his wife get dragged along for the ride? Akhalaia is probably safer in prison than anywhere else, and first man
in gets to cut the deal. What he knows could sink a lot of ships, even
the flagship.
After his failed attempts to seek asylum overseas perhaps he felt his
safest bet was to come back to Georgia and put trust in his friends and
the criminal justice system he so respects (and squeal like a pig_?

Bus Strike in Georgia is part of bigger end game – call it subterfuge!

Drivers of yellow buses went on strike. Jeffrey K. Silverman Three auto parks of the capital and over 1300 drivers participate in the
strike.
The drivers have 17-point demands. They demand improvement of labor
conditions and a salary increase. No buses are operating in Tbilisi and
citizens mainly travel by mini buses. The drivers say that this is a warning strike and if their demands are
not met the protest will be on a wide scale.

http://www.interpressnews.ge/en/society/42118-yellow-busses-on-strike-in-tbil…

Whoever is driving all of these strikes certainly don’t have the best
interests of the country at heart. This is planned and malicious damage
to the economy – a crime against the state (and we all know which party
is behind it all).

The problem which the perpetrators face is that they are trying to now
play the victim before on audience which they have previously victimized
and held in fear. This is why they were thrown out of power and they
only got as many seats as they now have because they did their level
best to steal the election – you could probably factor in that about 20%
of their votes as having been garnered by illicit tactics during the
election campaign and poll.

These are criminals standing up for criminals. It is little wonder that
they are doing all of this – playing dirty – when they know what is
coming once the truth comes out following deeper investigation into the
deaths of such people as Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania, Sergo Tetradze,
and Sandro Girgvliani, among others, and into the large scale corruption
which has taken place involving the auction of state assets and
monopolistic tenders and the revolving doors at Tbilisi City Hall.

All of these people – Saakashvili, Merabishvili, Akhalaia, Ugulava,
Bokeria, Sharangias, etc. are the true thieves-in-law in Georgia – they
know it – the whole country knows it and what they are trying to do now
just will not wash, not with Georgians and not with the Americans or the
Europeans (except perhaps with the EPP).

The people became power-mad and their depravity is well known among the
Georgian people. The great danger here is if they succeed in their aim
to pull the wool over just a few western eyes with their propaganda and
tactics – at best widespread unrest and unexplained bombings – at worst
a civil war could break out.

For a truer picture of just what sort of people we are dealing with here
– this is how they are viewed by the Georgian on the street:

Where does the “broom” of prison 8 stem from?
