probably 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 of a big chief warden would take those videos to ask a liar and the whole liar would take them to the president they used it for entertainment the enjoyed torturing her helpless people were in their hands one c.t. future prison you are nobody you have no dignity this is why these videos cause such an outrage and georgia this is why all those young people are protesting at how do you know that interior minister aha a cell that t.d.o. how do you know he was aware of what was going on all their choice and i just stood tall tales told to two 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 be called the only person who helps once or twice a week he used to spend
a lot of time talking to the q four than in his office a call i was a very close ally of president saakashvili in president bush called a beacon of democracy and he was fully aware of what was going on in prisons this is why i insist that saakashvili should resign and in democratic country it wouldn't be the minister of interior affairs or defense minister said this is the president was resigning as president saakashvili must step down as 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 will be right up with the. do you think president is at this meeting how about those things happening in the prison. and is that the over of course he knew saakashvili was fully aware of what was going on when i feel i was appointed minister in two thousand and five a system was very far from your. standards then saakashvili appointed
a minister and started taking very tough steps he would send security forces to prisons they would break into prisons and beat up in me with even himself would often be there with a camera filming everything and then i think those videos to saakashvili in order to show him what kind of prison really had built his european m.p.'s would visit people bernie 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 to talk to more why did you release this footage now. in may i asked myself whether i wanted to serve the region 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 provide your concerns about your family yes saakashvili 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 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 of biter. he kept their word but somehow four or five days ago president
saakashvili finds out about this tape and then he told a collage 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 that video was aired in georgian television pickling but they did it on my orders and 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 started bass by publishing their video and they contacted two of my friends and made that video with an inmate and played it in georgian t.v. what could i do i had this tape with two hours of footage that i had to defend
myself forced me to release the videos this had nothing to do with the election i wanted georgian people to wreak in their taking seem 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 and this is what i wanted to demonstrate i succeeded in that but in quite a brutal way we. can get a video of that alice how did the people inmates had to watch it to get political convictions have anything to do with that from what i think they know of. he 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. police you must be loyal to the
saakashvili regime you know criticism is a lie so you should either leave or they will get to you they would kill me and. they would seize me and my whole family they would hold us hostage or 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 you know i could have published this tape in the september or in august or in the van bibber but the published fabricated tape to accuse me and i had to respond. before we flew and what kind of response did you expect from the european institutions when he shall listen to them. really has people who lobby for him in the european union he pays them and they are very influential it's extremely difficult to find a person here who would listen to miletus because this entire system turns a blind eye to georgia the whole world has seen this video but when we asked people
in various offices here what it is if they haven't seen it it's obvious that 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 to your words if you would listen let's not rush really has that really reformed the georgian police force or what do you think of that. there was no reform or what are you talking about it is it's just a facade for. inside the whole system is rotten it's all done for p.r. within it's a param it's based on corruption at the lowest level you have police officers read it all in to see bribes but if you go higher and look at the partment chiefs for example that they receive millions right on the other hand you have traffic police who don't tell stories great just get it on the other hand you have saakashvili who built a residence for a bill. dollars and go to jail for eight hundred million dollars no georgia's
forand this for over five billion georgia's annual budget is only four billion people see these things. do you think i want to happen 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 and got korea what kind of response did you expect in georgia when you release those videos. but. 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 raise up into to the street which the protests are still reaching into police see day and night and other me just cities and they're likely to continue i think that unless sack us feel he has totally lost his mind he will step down peacefully. he goes if i may
just sir a long time i west georgia and the south australia as a model democracy he said that's really really what succeed in building democracy in georgia why does the west continue to about georgia's reputation as a democratic country over the image that goes. back to the polity these are political conclusion that saakashvili is a product of the us family and everyone in georgia is aware of it he will not tolerate for psychiatrically to fail in georgia by the orange revolution failed and so did others he's the only one who's still there saakashvili has been saving your and america for eight or nine years so they are going to see and know that he's been a swindler and that's what he is a political swindler. what do the people of georgia get from saakashvili as president. people became smart they know that saakashvili has to go
and police people canes patients but nothing substantial look at rude's i'm fine to see both like a small child people of this country just the way he wanted so because he never had any clear shared jewel like other presidents to for every day and hour of their lives after he would wake up whenever he wanted to for instance and his closest circle like alive were exactly the same he watched his superior saakashvili got caught 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 the fifth the little since two thousand and one so for a livin years i started noticing things were getting worse in two thousand and five since acholi is appointments so then we had criminal lords in the country but crime and torture weren't so obvious i'm not a polite gets drunk walks into a prison cell ice and beats up whoever he wants whichever way he wants the couple
