Trgamadze says there is nothing to be investigated
`There is nothing to be investigated about the video released on internet,` minority MP Givi Targamadze said in a televised comment aired briefly after the release of scandalous video, arguably shot in May 2009, when the authorities were planning a counter-attack on the insurgents at Mukhrovani military base. In it, ex-PM Vano Merabishvili says that he `needs two corpses` and orders others to bring those two corpses from anywhere.
Givi Targamadze tried to explain these words by ex-PM saying none of the orders by Merabishvili were illegitimate and there is nothing to be investigated.
The majority MP Irakli Sesiashvili has a different opinion about the video. He says the authenticity of the video should be clarified at first and if it is confirmed, than it becomes clear that Merabishvili was ordering murders.
Public Defender has also expressed his opinion about the scandal. He says the investigation should begin in case after the authenticity of the video is confirmed.
