We expected that the US Ambassador would deny the accusations made by judge Lasha Chkhikvadze, but we could not hear that. Such a statement made today the Chairman of the Georgian Dream.
“I was expecting a clear explanation and denial that no pressure had taken place. We said many times in the past, when there was a campaign relating to pressure, that no one from the US Embassy would ever do such a thing.
We expected such an answer from the US Ambassador, we expected her to say that she was sure that no one in the US Embassy had done such a thing, we expected that she would deny the accusation that was made by judge Chkhikvadze, but we could not hear that, which is very disturbing. It is interesting for us to get a clear answer regarding what happened, whether pressure was exerted or not.
This fact should either be denied very clearly, or someone should take responsibility for the fact that a particular employee exerted pressure on the Georgian judge”, - said Irakli Kobakhidze.
