Ambassador Norland’s Press Statement about Ongoing Developments (November 5)

Ambassador Norland’s Press Statement about Ongoing Developments (November 5)

This is obviously an important time in the life of Georgia’s democracy. There are some important meetings happening still today. And I know all the diplomats in Tbilisi, the international community, Washington is following all of these closely. Obviously the composition of Georgia’s cabinet and government is a matter for Georgians to decide. However, at a time of regional turmoil and domestic economic challenge what Georgia needs the most is stability, unity, demonstrated commitment to due process and the rule of law, and public confidence in democratic institutions. We urge all parties to work towards these goals and focus on future for the country that is firmly anchored in Euro-Atlantic institutions. It would not be appropriate for the United States to take a position on specific ongoing investigations, but the number and scope of prosecutions of former and current officials raises legitimate concern that the judicial system is being used in a politicized way, or for political purposes. We urge the government to take steps to dispel these perceptions.
