"Georgia may well be at a crossroads in its democratic development. The use of force to arrest the leader of the opposition sets a bad precedent for using what should be an impartial justice system for political purposes. Georgia’s leadership must decide whether to continue on the path of being part of the Euro-Atlantic community based on democratic values and respect for human rights or slip backward." - Yalowitz who serves as a Global Fellow at The Wilson Center in Washington, DC today told BM.GE.
