and i don't know what he would do with it but i feel i would often come to the gold only person perhaps once or twice a week he used to spend a lot of time talking to the chief warden in his office i feel i was a very close ally of president saakashvili in 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 in time across the country it would be the minister of interior affairs or defense minister said this is the president who is resigning as president saakashvili must step down as a democrat but he's no democrat he keeps the entire nation in chaos and fear he relies on criminals he has people with blood on their hands working in high positions in the government will be. do you think president bush meeting about those things happening in the prison. i mean of course he. really was fully aware of what was going on when acholi was appointed minister in two
8:31 pm
thousand and five system was very far from european standards then saakashvili appointed the 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 he was sure those videos to saakashvili in order to show him what kind of prison he had built his 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. in may i asked myself whether i wanted to serve. they read seem to be. i tendered
8:32 pm
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 my you 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
8:33 pm
assured me that they would keep it secret and that saakashvili would never find out about it to 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 me and then the video was aired in georgian television. 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 this by publishing their video and they contacted two of my friends and made that fit. with an inmate and played it in georgian t.v.
8:34 pm
what could i do you know that i had this tape with two hours of footage that i had to defend myself or force me to release the video games this 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 democratic 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 if it in my bitterness how did the people inmates had to watch him did get political convictions have anything to do with that from isis and the love of the by 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
8:35 pm
is extremely politicized if you work in the prison system or in the 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 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 has 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 not fabricated tape to accuse me and i had to respond to me the funny thing is what kind of response did you expect from european institutions so many shall listen to them. really has people who lobby for him in the european union. and they're very influential it's extremely difficult to find a person. here who would listen to miletus because this entire system turns
8:36 pm
a blind eye to ga the whole world has seen this video but when we ask 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 i'm sure there would be if you would listen that's not this really has that 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. inside the whole system is rotten it's all done for p.r. within it's apparently it's based on corruption at the lowest level you have police officers read it all interested 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. it's on the other hand you have saakashvili
8:37 pm
who built a residence for a billion dollars and bought a chair for eight hundred million dollars no gas' forand this for over five billion georgia's annual budget is only four billion people see these things. that's a good thing 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 got korea what kind of response did you expect in georgia when you release the us 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 and to keep the street which the protests are still reaching into police see day and night and other major cities and they're likely to continue i think that unless seconds feel

he has totally lost his mind he will step down peacefully. it goes if i think is wrong time i west georgia and the south australia as a model democracy he said that's really really was succeed in building democracy in georgia why does the west continue to that georgia's reputation as a democratic country i would not buy the image that goes. back to the qualities or political conclusion of saakashvili as a product of the us british family and everyone in georgia is aware of it he will not tolerate for psychiatrically to fail in georgia by the orange revolution fields i'm so did others he's the only one who's still there saakashvili has been saving your and america for x. 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
