Mikheil Sarjveladze Accuses Opposition of Gaining 'Political Dividends' from Shovi Tragedy

Mikheil Sarjveladze, the chairman of the human rights protection committee, addressed the opposition's initiative to create an investigative commission in parliament by stating, "None of the oppositionists who speak loudly and enthusiastically about the investigative commission have come to the site and visited the epicenter of the tragedy."

According to him, the opposition's intention is to gain political dividends from this tragedy rather than to uncover the truth.

"When discussing the opposition, which made very loud statements regarding the Shovi tragedy, their commitment was notably lacking, in fact, it was clearly felt that their desire was to write political dividends on this huge tragedy rather than seeking the truth. Among them, as demands for the creation of an investigative commission began to be raised, we witnessed many similar requests. However, it's important not to overlook the fact that none of the oppositionists who speak about it loudly and actively actually visited the location or physically inspected the epicenter of the tragedy that took place there," stated Sarjveladze.
