Human Rights Center responses to possible Bribery of Voters in Telavi

National Movement activists distributed bread flour, rice, oil and washing powder in Telavi. Irine Urushadze lawyer from Transparency International Georgia states that’s there is use of administrative resources and bribery of voters.

10 kg flour, 5 kg macaroni, 1 bottle oil and 2 washing powders are given to a family. Vazha Zuroshvili deputy director of  Telavi municipality governor said to Information Centre of Khaketi that nearly 8 000 thousand people will get aid as a result of  natural disaster. According to ICK products will be given also to those families who weren’t affected by disaster or got minor damage.

National Movement activist that was distributing products didn’t answer on the question of ICK, why he was distributing products dressed in National Movement t-shirt. Gigi Likokeli governor of Telavi territorial authority also avoided to answer this question.

Human Rights Center considers that pre-election period is official after publication relevant legal act by president about 2012 parliamentary elections. Therefore we believe that in this case it maybe be violation of article 164 of criminal code that is about bribery of voters also violation of maliciously using administrative resources and using budget for pre-election period. Human Rights Center requests from financial monitoring service of state audit and inter-agency commission to start investigation of those facts and react adequately.
