OPEN LETTER TO MR. MICHAEL SAAKASHVILI
Mr. President,

Allow me to congratulate you  on your election for the second Presidential term. Please accept the assurances of my highest consideration; at the same time I, as public Defender of Georgia,  feel myself obliged  to address you in the frame of my competence and once again remind you that the state in the field of protection of Human Rights in the country leaves much to be desired.

INFALLIBILITY

You have repeatedly pointed out that you are not in Public Defender’s good graces. I assure you that this doesn’t correspond to the reality; however,  also for the future  I can not promise to tolerate the facts of Human Rights violations.

It’s a great pity that all my attempts to research  and make public the facts of Human Rights’ violations within my reach  have been apprehended as malevolence. An indicative expression of this attitude was the fact that on November 7 the servants of special forces beat me with the bludgeons exactly as a Public Defender.  They fulfilled the task set by the government. I do hope that you believe that I haven’t brought these facts because of my personal resentment  and would like to convince you that my point of view can not become  a subject to bludgeon-made-for change.
