threatening to stoke up further trouble in the region meanwhile israel is reportedly deploying new missile defense systems near its border and. the georgian opposition leader nino burdzhanadze has been in brussels recently as part of around europe trip because it was aimed at giving an inside account of last month's violent police crackdown on protesters were told r.t. that georgia's costly p.r. campaigns can't hide the truth about president saakashvili that's today's interview . week of protests ousting georgian president saakashvili ended in violent dispersal of protesters by their eyes police joining us now to talk of more about that particular circumstance in instances and georgian politics in general is the recognized leader of georgian opposition you know. mr jones you think you very much for joining us today the first question unfortunately will be
a somewhat sad one we will have to ask you about the speech are attributed to your supporters on the there on the night of the protests could you tell us more about what happened that night people to maybe government will use the force against the demonstrators and the we said many times when we appeal to the population into the people who are standing in front of the parliament buildings it may be governmental years of course but these people were really very much of a team they many of them said to me and to us the leader so national assembly directly we are ready for. even for you to the force against us but we will show example for the rest of the population of georgia i think we have to fight for our dignity and for our rights but of course nobody was waiting the. government will they use such a brutal force people nobody was waiting this will be just demonstration of force
and this will be operation to punish the people who are in front of the parliament joy just special forces surrounded the people where in trip there was no way out there was no possibility to leave the square. as we understand special forces received special instructions to arrest all demonstrations and then nine hundred demonstrators have. being arrested that night to beat people brutally especially in the hands heads and many people received serious injuries and were transported to the hospitals and they had to special instruction and not to allow me the leaders of the national assembly to leave. place. so. it was a real punishment to the people and it's not an accidental when one of the main
supporters of the war is this mr bender kids whose quality world knowledge even in . the places said that it was a kid is that the government used to such a brutal force against the demonstrations tomorrow as they will think twice until they will participate in any demonstrations so one person or supporters who died despite the fact that the government was broadcasting king t.v. that he died because of car accident which thanks to my cars which is not serious fortunately there where we do a footage which shows that this person had been beaten until the death by ten fifteen special forces representatives and you conceived video footage on you tube and on our website to following the clampdown many people were arrested a lot of your supporters in fact have gone missing so do you have any information
on their current whereabouts do you know anything about them right now about two hundred seventy eight people are just most of these people have been arrested not only trying to sikhs in the morning but afterwards and all they have. to call the resistance against police results any evidence is real evidences from the side of the government of course sure that these people are political prisoners. they will appeal to the court concerning all these cases what has to change in georgian politics for the country to move forward to step away from its i would say post soviet. style than move forward towards westernized country or to prosper you know i will not say right now that george is a post soviet country it was in two thousand and three into selves and forward to selves and five until two thousand and late two thousand and eight even despite of
the war right now it's a typical soviet style country it's enjoyed you're right now it's a real bullshit. with all signs of soviet regime violation of elementary constitutional norms. while ation of elementary human rights control of media. police and we just doing everything despite of our legal obligations if it's coming from from the political decisions towards a typical soviet country where every person who is against regime is the enemy of the country i remember in soviet time even when i was small. not afterwards during that period but before and i read it in the books but every person who was criticising soviet regime was. supporters or.
secret agent of imperioli right now in georgia is the same you can change the words imperialism with russia and every person who is criticizing saakashvili and who is against he's a regime all of them just beginning for me it's a very serious place. rochelle kremlin we are just trading days we are enemies of the people everything the same and. you can't imagine that as it wasn't for myself. i enjoyed your people right now not everybody of course for. many people are afraid even to call to your place to ask you how are you so afraid to come to the funerals and your. family also people who are not just agree with this regime and if you have a different point of view if you are supporters of
a position you have huge reach very high reason to lose their job to find finding your pulpit drugs or. do you have a high risk to be really just outside of not only political but real life. so this is a typical soviet country modernized i call it the modernized soviet union. which is the ruling right now in my country the perception of the united states officials changed all of the president really has the support windowed would you say and yes without any doubt saakashvili has right now and his regime less personal supports and it was before during president. bush's presidency but you know the problem is that united states is too big and they have too many problems and georgia is not priority number one so that is why quite often i have a feeling that not indeed tales are high officials in the united states know
what reality going on in georgia from another side letter where state department's conclusions in two thousand and nine two thousand and ten where they were speaking about their lead corruption where they were staying at speaking about selective justice but i think that. nevertheless even as this support which that actually had right now has right now this is a mistake from the side of united. states because this kind of support in the eyes of many georgians creating a lot of questions people don't understand why one of the most democratic country in the world continued to support. even less but never still is a regime which is absolutely on the mall critic of the georgian president has been seen as a sort of freedom poster boy by a lot of people in the west not just the united states but in europe as well so right now is your staying here in brussels and meeting with people do you find it
difficult to change that mindset that perception of the georgian president you know mainly the. international community is a no real face of that country quite well of course diplomacy means that they will never say it in public but you can compare our position of these people before two thousand and seven before themselves and before even twenty six of may and right now but of course you need time you need time. to. hold a real face so. really a real face of georgian democracy. lots of community very yeah. a little beast and p.r. company. but nevertheless you can see quite critical articles and send him to you so you can buy many things. always money which is really spending for p.r.
and loves companies but you can't buy everything and everyone you can to lie for a short time to ruin but you can't lie to everybody so it's meant to have time but of course we need to work very seriously and that is why i'm here what has for you personally changed since you left the georgian government and switched over to the opposition side you know my life in the government was not confident. because i had lots of problems with governmental the team. it was very difficult to be responsible for the many decisions which was not supported in the close circle from my side but i am a person who is playing according groups as i was a part of the team quite often i was taking responsibility for the decisions which . was decided despite my protest and despite of my.
decisions but i was a part of the team when i saw that. i don't want to continue like that i don't want to be responsible in front of my people for what i was think is not right but never still it. was done by the government i decided to leave you know personally of course being the speaker of the parliament more confortable you have security you have a lot of people around the you have just as there are a lot of people around who are trying just to say at least hello to you right now of course many things have been changed even for my friends let's say trying to avoid to see your speak with you or sometimes just making just. doing that in this case that they didn't see you in just the public places and of course it's a personally not not comfortable. to be leader of
a position party enjoyed your really difficult because there you are responsible into in front of the people who trust you. and you can't protect these people even when you know that these people are absolutely innocent and right and of course the emotional it's very difficult i remember. i can tell you is that even more difficult for me was twenty six days. twenty seven says that and that night until i received any information that some people had been died when i was on. the side of special forces more difficult it was the second day said day when i was receiving every minute in my phone information that this person had been arrested that person had been arrested this person just we don't know where he is and you have you can't do anything absolutely to protect these people. mean any case you
can just don't think you'll have to continue to fight we're wishing you the best in all of your endeavors thank you very much for coming in talking to us thank you. well. reviewed the latest in science and technology from around the world. we've got the future covered. wealthy british style. that's not on. the. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy cars report on our.
