Shalva Papuashvili: Regarding foreign experts, we already trusted the European Union once, when Polish experts came to Mikheil Saakashvili at their request, and the European Union disappointed us

Regarding foreign experts, we once trusted the European Union among them, when Polish experts came to Mikheil Saakashvili at their request. The European Union disappointed us, - Speaker of the Parliament Shalva Papuashvili told journalists.

According to him, the authorities have questions about what is behind this, when they tell them that judges should not be chosen by the Georgian people, some foreigner should come.

"Yesterday, we heard the EU ambassador's statement that a vetting should take place with the participation of foreign experts. One, that it is against the constitution, it is against our independence, it is against the way Georgian people see themselves. We are a state, we are not some entity that does not have the ability to solve its own issues. Regarding foreign experts, we once trusted the European Union among them, when Polish experts came to Mikheil Saakashvili at their request, call, or expression of various wishes. We trust the European Union and the European Union has disappointed us, the European Union has disappointed us.

We saw that they actually organized a special operation against Mikheil Saakashvili, they took out some of his biological material with a sock, and the party that sent them did not even get any convincing explanation in this regard. When you shake the trust like this and the European Union was also involved in it, of course we have questions, what is behind it, when we are told that judges should not be chosen by the Georgian people, some foreigner should come, experts of this type, who will bring in the names and Names, who should be a judge and who should not be, and the contents of the interview will be carried out with socks. I am very sorry that such statements are made in relation to Georgian justice", said Shalva Papuashvili.
