Discussion of draft law "On transparency of foreign influence" to continue in first reading tomorrow

Discussion of the draft law "On transparency of foreign influence" will continue in the first reading at the plenary session of the Parliament tomorrow, April 17.

Mamuka Mdinaradze presented the draft law of the Georgian Dream faction at the plenary session.

"No country says about the draft law that it is very good, because it is not in any country’s interest except Georgia!

Last year, 27 countries told us through their ambassadors that Mikheil Saakashvili was dying and that we had to release him, but he was not dying and we did not release him. We were alone and we were right. Then everyone said that no, he was not dying, we were no longer alone. Now nobody is asking for Saakashvili's release. Today they are telling us to withdraw this law, but we will not withdraw it because it is Georgian and all 27 countries will later be of the same opinion," said Mamuka Mdinaradze.
