“It was a very stupid step. The
opposition leader’s arrest was an absolutely stupid decision that jeopardizes
civil peace in Georgia and dooms the country to instability. The government laid a significant foundation for radicalisation, further delaying both
external and internal investments into the country's economy, ”
the International Chamber of Commerce in Georgia Fady Asly, says commenting on the opposition
National Movement leader Nika Melia’s arrest this morning.
Asly believes that this decision is economic
“The authorities signed the country’s economic
suicide. The country is led by politicians
who are driven by hatred while the
country is on the verge of poverty. The number of people for whom life in
Georgia becomes unbearable is growing. All this will become the basis for
political and economic instability that will further deepen. Georgia’s government
is a real recipe for disaster, ”he notes.
According to ICC Georgia Chairman, the reaction of the international community
will be extremely negative and no doubt will affect the situation in the country.
“The international community will perhaps not
make any public statements, but behind closed doors there will be talks about which
Georgia will learn very soon,” Fady Asly poits out.
