Irakli Kobakhidze: The opposition directly accused the US Embassy of exerting pressure on judges, but the silence of the Embassy means that the allegations were demagogy and speculation

The opposition directly accused the US Embassy of exerting pressure on a judge, violating his judicial independence, as well as discrimination and informal governance attempts, but the Embassy has already proved that the allegations made by the opposition against them are demagogy and speculation,” Irakli Kobakhidze, Chairman of the Georgian Dream party, said at the briefing in the Parliament.Kobakhidze noted that the ruling party asked the US Embassy to release information contrary to what the opposition had spread. However, according to Kobakhidze, he understoods the position of the Embassy because "it is embarrassing to even talk about such an accusation." According to Kobakhidze, "this is a case when the silence of the Embassy means that they agree with the position of the ruling team.""Naturally, this needed an answer and reaction from us. We asked the US Embassy to release information contrary to what the opposition was spread. We also understand that it will be difficult for the Embassy to make this statement because it is embarrassing to talk about it. It is inconvenient and we absolutely understand the US Embassy. It has already been proved that the accusations made by the opposition against the US Embassy are complete demagogy and speculation. This is a case when the silence of the Embassy means that they agree with the position of the ruling team. Alleging that "I have not committed discrimination" is inconvenient. We did not expect the US Embassy to make a statement alleging "we have not committed crimes and discrimination."Consequently, the opposition accused the US Embassy of discrimination and crime, and in the end it turned out that everything was a lie and empty propaganda.Only the radical opposition speaks about sanctions. What sanctions should be imposed on any judge? For example, what sanction should be imposed for a verdict related to the robbery of a TV station. What a nonsense, it is not even worth talking about this seriously. This topic is closed - the US silence also means that everything that the opposition has been spreading was demagogy and lies. Naturally, the US Embassy would never do such a thing. Therefore, it turned out that the radical opposition was accusing the US Embassy of lying," Irakli Kobakhidze said.
