Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili has released a special statement, saying that pacing up the review process of the decision of bringing the operations by the State Inspector's Service to an end is unacceptable.
Zurabishvili also says in her statement that similar treatment of Londa Toloraia, the female head of the service, is inadmissible for her as a female leader. In the president's words, revocation of the service without prior notice, when Toloraia is on her maternity leave, cannot be anyhow justified.
Additionally, to make things worse, as president Zurabishvili says in the statement, they are leaving more than 100 employees at the State Inspector's Service jobless. She stresses that these people cannot be left unemployed, and they must retain their posts. According to Zurabishvili, everyone must be enabled to put forth their arguments, and, most importantly, the State Inspector must exercise her right to introduce to the parliament the already submitted report on her activities. ''Only after this, the substantiated decision must be made, which answers to all questions from the public,'' Zurabishvili said, adding ''all similar decisions create uncertainty in public and raise questions, which harms the depolarization process.''
