U.S. 'Concerned by Continued Investigations Against Opposition Figures' in Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Sep.'14 / 09:46

The U.S. Department of State said on September 12 it is concerned by “the risk that politicized prosecutions would pose for Georgia’s democracy.”

“The United States urges all of Georgia’s pro-democracy and pro-Euro-Atlantic forces to focus on their common interests, build on recent achievements, and work together to move the country forward and address the pressing economic and regional security challenges of the day,” State Department’s deputy spokesperson, Marie Harf, said in a press statement.

The statement, which is called “In Support of Georgia's Multiparty Democracy and Euro-Atlantic Future”, also says: “We are concerned by the continued investigations and criminal charges against opposition figures and the risks that politicized prosecutions would pose for Georgia’s democracy.”

“The United States continues to support Georgia’s democratic development, which must include respect for political pluralism and open debate,” it said.
