12:30 am
in. ireland. so what he had to fetch as a sledge and today our detox a georgian me general idea made by the guards who missed details of him meets the goal dani prison in boise being tortured what a bloody mess but how long has this torture been seeking please how long have you been filming this this long. yeah i've been working as the prisons deputy chief ordered since two thousand and eight with all of the above all who gave the orders who in the government knew what was going on and who kept this matter under wraps.
12:31 am
nobody just the chief wards and i was deputy chief for it and he wanted me to film some interesting moments for example when police arrest an opposition activist or a prominent figure is arrested he wanted it on tape probably they intended to use those videos later against those people and i made those videos over the period of a year or maybe six months i'm not sure i didn't meet them in a day or two they were accumulated over a period of time and eventually i had two hours of video big chief warden would take those videos to and the collider would take them to the president they used it for entertainment the enjoyed torturing her helpless people were in their hands one city future prison you are nobody you have no dignity this is why these videos caused such an outrage in georgia this is why all those young people are protesting how do you know that interior minister or how was sold a t.d.o. how do you know he was aware of what was going on there troy or i just thought i
12:32 am
was told to to i made those videos for him and then he would take the tape and i don't know what he would do with it but i feel i would often come to the only person perhaps once or twice a week he used to spend a lot of time talking to the chief or than in his office i call iowa. a very close ally of president saakashvili whom president bush called a beacon of democracy he was fully aware of what was going on in prisons this is why i insist that saakashvili should resign and into macwrite a country it would be the minister of interior affairs or defense minister said. the president would resign and president saakashvili must step in if he is a democrat but he's no democrat he keeps the entire nation and chaos and fear he relies on criminals he has people with blood on their hands working in high positions in the government. do you think presidents at this meeting how about
12:33 am
those things happening in the prison. of course he knew saakashvili was fully aware of what was going on when akhalaia was appointed minister in two thousand and five the system was very far from european standards then saakashvili appointed akhalaia minister and started taking very tough steps he would send security forces to prisons they would break into prisons and beat up in me even himself would often be there with a camera filming everything and then i think he was sure those videos to saakashvili in order to show him what kind of prison he had built these european m.p.'s would visit any prison and they were impressed they would see how did you manage to build such a system you have four thousand inmates here and this place is so quiet we haven't heard as much as anybody speaking loudly it's almost as if there were no inmates here at all. why did you release this footage now.
12:34 am
in may i asked myself whether i wanted to serve the ridge seem or to be a man i tendered my resignation took the videos i had made and left the country i was afraid because i thought they would kill me so i came to. belgium and asked for political asylum for by you concerns about your family yes sacco's really is mentally unstable but nobody knows what he may do after i released those videos some people called me on the phone a few times telling me to keep my mouth shut those phone calls were just a couple of days ago i secretly left georgia and came to belgium in july i have been here for three months no and for financial reasons i have been unable to bring my family here belgian institutions tell me my videos can't be published before my family comes here because nobody knows what saakashvili may do to them as soon as
12:35 am
my family is in belgium this footage will be released when i came to belgium i played those tapes to the european commission and the european parliament and be assured me that they would keep it secret and that saakashvili would never find out about it so be kept their word but somehow four or five days ago president saakashvili finds out about this tape and then he told to get two of my friends who worked with me at the prison and stage a beating of an inmate so those two guys beat up an innocent and meet and then the video was aired in georgian television they claimed that they did it on my orders the purpose of this fabrication was to create an impression that i was connected to the opposition he said i was paid two million dollars for those videos but i have never been involved in politics i have never been in a political party i don't care about politics with and why did you release this footage now shortly before the upcoming parliamentary election in no no they
12:36 am
started this by publishing their video and they contacted two of my friends and made that video with an inmate and played it on georgian t.v. what could i do that i had this tape with two hours of footage that i had to defend myself or force me to release those videos based. had nothing to do with the election i wanted georgian people to wreak in their dignity especially prisoners i wanted to show the entire world what their beloved democrat and beacon of freedom saakashvili was doing to his own people he doesn't love his people and he doesn't care about anyone he's a criminal and there's cramer runs him this is what i wanted to demonstrate i succeeded in that but in quite a brutal way. but i think that if it i'm a bit honest how did the peak inmates had to watch it did get political convictions have anything to do with that. and that's it and enough of the by they
12:37 am
just did it for entertainment or if an inmate had something to do with politics if he was saakashvili as enemy they would pick him this is them is extremely politicized if you work in the prison system or in the police you must be loyal to the psychotic feeling region no criticism is a lie you should either leave or they will get to you they would kill me but they would seize me and my whole family they would hold us hostage expel us from georgia i had to come here to appeal to the international community i've been waiting for this moment this is nothing to do with the election i could have published this tape in the september or in august or in the vendor but the publish not fabricated tape to accuse me and i had to respond. with a replay of what kind of response did you expect from european institutions when you show this to them you're. really has people who lobby for him in the european
12:38 am
union he pays them and they are very influential it's extremely difficult to find a person here who would listen similar to this entire system turns a blind eye to ga the whole world has seen this video but when we ask people in various offices here it is as if they haven't seen it. they just know that saakashvili is a democrat and they don't want to see anything or hear anything the only committee that's had a strong reaction is this committee for torture in stride they had a very strong response i think you are even if you were a little less so this really has really reformed the georgian police force or what do you think of that. there was no reform what are you talking about it is it's just a facade for outsiders to come inside the whole system is rotten it's all done for p.r. within it's a pyramid based on corruption at the lowest level you have police officers who
12:39 am
don't receive bribes but if you go higher and look at the parliament chiefs for example they receive millions in the grapes on the other hand you have traffic police who don't think stuart's great but on the other hand you have saakashvili who built a residence for a billion dollars and bought a chair for eight hundred million dollars no gas' forand is four or five billion georges and your budget is only four billion people see these things that's producing what happened in the gold danny prison is also happening in other georgian prisons if you don't know it wasn't was the georgian prison system has eighteen prisons and torture took place in all of them according to what kind of response did you expect in georgia when you release those videos. the response has exceeded my expectations the georgian people are very emotional and they have a very strong sense of pride and dignity that's why they rose up and suited the
12:40 am
streets the protests are still reaching into police each day and night and other major cities and they're likely to continue i think that unless feeley has totally lost his mind he will step down peacefully. he goes if a native son or a long time i west ham. would you put on the south as a model democracy that gets really really was succeeded in building democracy in georgia why does the west continue to that georgia's reputation as a democratic country i would not but the limited numbers. of the qualities are political conclusion that saakashvili is a product of the us rich family and everyone in georgia is aware of it it will be will not tolerate for psychotically to fail georgia by the orange revolution fields i hunt so did others so he's the only one who's still there saakashvili has been saving your with america for x. or nine years so they are going to see and know that he's been
12:41 am
a swindler and that's what he is a political. mano with but that's really what did people of georgia get from saakashvili as president when. people became smart they know that saakashvili has to go and police are people against patients but nothing substantial you could ludes and find and see both like a small child good people of this country just the way he wanted so good he never had any clear should you like other presidents to for every day and hour of their life that he would wake up whenever he wanted to for instance and his closest circle like a collage were exactly the same he watched his superior saakashvili got cut and copied his behavior. second how long had he been working in the prison system when did you first notice the things were getting worse both if it. since two thousand and one so for a livin year i started noticing things were getting worse in two thousand and five
