TBILISI, DFWatch – The Supreme Court in Georgia’s breakaway region South Ossetia will Monday decide when to hear the case of Alla Dzhioyeva’s supporters, according Atsamaz Bichenov, chairman of the Supreme Court, who is quoted in Russian media.
Dzhioyeva supporters are asking the court to recognize Dzhioyeva’s victory in the so-called presidential elections on November 27.
Russian news agency Ria Novosti reports that the so-called Prosecutor General of South Ossetia will give a legal assessment of illegal actions of supporters of Jioev, according to Eldar Kokoev, the so-called Deputy Attorney General.
“Those actions that have taken place are of course crimes, but we must understand that there is a political will which sometimes trumps the requirements of the law,” he says.
He adds that the Prosecutor General awaits the decision of the so-called Supreme Court of South Ossetia.
On Tuesday the so-called Supreme Court annulled the results of the so-called presidential results. The date of the next early elections was scheduled for March 25, 2012.
The second round of the so-called elections saw a match between Alla Dzhioyeva, former minister of education, and Anatoly Bibilov, head of the emergency situations ministry in South Ossetia. Bibilov was considered a clear Kremlin favorite. But Dzhioyeva beat him by a clear margin.
After the SUpreme Court’s decision, Dzhioyeva supporters gathered on the mains square in Tskhinvali in front of the so-called governmental building, demanding to annul the court’s decision and transfer government power to Dzhioyeva. They are still staying on the main square Sunday.
Russian media report that Dzhioyeva’s supporters intend to hold her inauguration on December 10, and expect to gather around 17 000 people.
