US Ambassador criticizes interrogations in Georgia

by | Mar 16, 2012

TBILISI, DFWatch – The U.S. Ambassador to Georgia, John Bass, has expressed concern about the wave of interrogations carried out by the Georgian Chamber of Control.

“Concerned about the controversy surrounding the Chamber of Control’s recent activities. The lack of clear guidelines regarding its work to implement campaign finance legislation will not increase public confidence in this institution or in a competitive campaign environment,” Bass writes on his Facebook profile page, a posting whose authenticity was confirmed by the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi.

This week, many opposition activists in the regions outside of Tbilisi have been called in for questioning. The Chamber is acting under new powers it was given last December with the goal of creating transparency in the party financing ahead of the election for parliament in October.
