TBILISI, April 10 (Itar-Tass) – Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said on Wednesday he did not rule out that President Mikhail Saakashvili might be interrogated if need be.
“In many European countries incumbent presidents were invited for interrogation and were interrogated, courts also interrogated presidents who had resigned from office,” he said at a meeting with editor-in-chiefs of local newspapers and TV channels.
“The interrogation of a president through court is a civilized form and if need be, a president should show understanding, this is a normal European method,” Ivanishvili said. “He (the head of state) is an ordinary member of our society and there can be questions to ask him.”
On April 8 Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani said she did not rule out that in the course of Georgia’s investigation of the August 2008 war “some officials irrespective of their citizenship and nationality may be interrogated.”
The Prosecutor-General’s Office has all those materials that the former authorities had gathered while investigating the events of 2008, she said.
“This supposedly implies the interrogation of Georgia’s incumbent president who might leave this post to the moment of interrogation (as Saakashvili’s term of office expires in October 2013 -Itar-Tass),” Tsulukiani said.
