Mikhail Saakashvili may still go on trial. In addition to judge the fugitive President of Georgia will have the opportunity at home, where it "hangs" several criminal cases. It has the ability to prosecute in the Hague. And respond he will have Not for embezzlement And corruption, And transgressions are much more serious.
in the international criminal court, finally, think about investigating the events of August 2008 in South Ossetia. Then, if anyone has forgotten, the Georgian army attacked Tskhinval And stationed Russian peacekeepers there. The order about this operation gave the then head of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, And now He can answer for it. Or not?
The Prosecutor of the international organization of Fatou Bensouda as long as only initiated the proceedings. It will take place Or not is another question. Before official action necessary to obtain approval from a special chamber of judges of the three commissioners of the European Themis.
But even if all bureaucratic obstacles are resolved, it is still very many questions to the investigation. The main one - why had to wait so many years? However, the optimism among potential participants in the proceedings. So, in the foreign Ministry of South Ossetia has welcomed the idea to remember military lawlessness of Georgian authorities. Local employees of the foreign Ministry expressed hope for a fair trial And are even willing to share their materials.
The former head of the Georgian Parliament Nino Burjanadze, with his own hand, thinks that war is "the biggest crime of Saakashvili" committed to both Georgians And Ossetians." He is obliged, in the 1st turn, held accountable to their people for the Events of 2008, And didn't have to wait as long as it will take the Hague court, " says Burjanadze.
at the same time it is clear that just a quick head won't give up. In the event of trial from him, you can expect the repetition of all the fables And absurdities with which He tried to justify after the inglorious end of His adventure in 2008. It is no secret that Saakashvili, like His American friends - good connection in European structures. According to the calculations we can predict that the patrons of Saakashvili will try Or do to avoid proceedings, Or to send Him on a false trail. To represent the initiator of the war " white And fluffy ". And South Ossetia And the Russian Federation - almost the aggressors. Thus, the head of the Department for CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration And relations with compatriots Leonid Slutsky emphasized that the time to initiate this investigation selected very strange. Still, 7 years have passed, And now almost encounter fresh Details of the war. However, have the ability to appear fresh attacks against Russia. The events in Ukraine perfectly showed that it is possible to blame anyone And anything. And the Russian military involvement in the Syrian conflict - another reason to think about other countries as if he had been subjected to aggression from the Russian capital.
So, if the answer to the question " And judges who?" all clear, here, " whom we will judge?" It is not So simple. Good initiative and tenacious in European hands can turn from the trial of Saakashvili And His cronies to court over Russia.
