Scandalous letter by English teacher of the Ivanishvilis

08.02.12 20:51

"Life with Bidzina Ivanishvili, an eye opening and near death experience in Georgia", - the letter has been published by Patrick Downey, who used to work as an English teacher at the Ivanishvilis` in 2007-2008. In the letter the former U.S. citizens tells a lot of details about the family of the Georgian business tycoon and leader of the Georgian Dream Public Movement.

"I had to come to expect the unexpected living with and working for the Ivanishvilis... but being drugged was something I never would have expected in a million years. Not to mention being told blatant lies, and having one of the world`s richest men, who I considered to be a friend, suddenly turn his back on me. Maybe this was out of fear of a confrontation, but probably more was involved, perhaps my Foreign Service background – I had served at the US Embassy in Moscow, and had knowledge of the people Ivanishvili would come to associate with, and the networks of patronage within the political elites of Georgia and Russia.

"Settled in my room in the small apartment building (the "Teachers Home") across the compound in the late hours of September 28, I was startled when Bera called. He told me that Uta had drugged me, as a joke, and that he was sorry - Uta later apologized over the phone to me - and that he, and Ivanishvili`s Assistant Head of Security, would come by shortly to take me to the doctor, who also lived in the compound: a cardiologist named Zviad Matoshvili.

"It was then that I learned from Dr. Matoshvili that I had been given a "twentyfold overdose" of a powerful, prescription-strength laxative (I believe the Ivanishvilis used laxatives as part of their diet/health regime) as a prank, during our "end of summer" celebration, but that Uta and the boys had thought better of it afterward and decided to call the doctor - Matoshvili told me that my condition could have been "very serious" had I not been treated." the letter says.

Bidzina Ivanishvili responded to the letter today saying that it`s evident Patrick Downey is suffering from psychical problems and his letter should not be perceived seriously by journalists.
