Georgian ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili told Formula TV company that if Georgian people let Bidzina Ivanishvili send him, the founder of the Georgian state, to jail, 'we deserve everything.'
'Are we truly kept in the dark?! Why am I at risk of being jailed? Because I have done nothing wrong? Because I have built the Georgian state? Because I have not stolen a single tetri from Georgia? Because I have increased the country's budget 12 times? Because under my government, Georgia saw a threefold decrease in poverty? Because under my rule, the country's economy saw a fourfold growth? Because I have made Georgia the least corrupt country in the world? Why do I have to go to jail? Why are you not asking this question?
If Georgian people allow Ivanishvili, this ignorant wretch, to jail the founder of the Georgian state, we deserve everything. Let Georgian people make the decision. I fear nothing. I am losing my country; we are losing our country, and I will stop at nothing,'' Saakashvili declared.
