Justice Minister comments on recent arrests and cooperation with president
Minister of Justice of Georgia rules out political revenge in the investigation of the cases tied with the former senior authorities. Tea Tsulukiani says any person accused of committing a crime, must be punished regardless of their current or previous positions.
`The minority is concerned about these arrests because they had thought that the crimes would remain unpunished, but the crimes will be prosecuted. The fact that somebody had a high position or was involved in politics in the past will not be considered as immunity. By no means, the process can be assessed as political oppression,` Justice Minister said.
Tea Tsulukiani has also commented on the recent statement of the prime minister, who said he would cooperate with president Saakashvili.
`We have to co-habit until the next presidential elections and until Georgian people dismisses Saakashvili. We have to co-habit in the political space, this is natural,` Tea Tsulukiani said.
