MEP Viola von Cramon responded to the statement of Irakli Kobakhidze, the chairman of the Georgian Dream, on Twitter.
"Who can you take these guys seriously? It’s so sad to watch this," MEP wrote.
Irakli Kobakhidze, the chairman of the Georgian Dream, told Public Broadcaster that "no serious statement can be made about Viola von Cramon" and that he had many reasons for that.
"Where is moving backwards? Moving backwards is about perceptions. These perceptions are formed here by the National Movement, and over there by the Von Cramons, Fotygas, and so on. This is actually one small group. Exactly such people, who are constantly pushing the system towards injustice, are in essence anti-EU, because European values are many things, but among them, one of the most important is the rule of law. When you have been asked since 2012 not to enforce the law and that is their whole line, it means that European values are not close to them at all. This is a very simple logical conclusion and there is only one reason for this - they are the patrons of criminals, of a particular criminal political force. Viola von Cramon did not know what crime the National Movement was committing in 2012? Or Risch and others? Everyone knew.
If Viola von Cramon had a fair assessment of what the National Movement is, including what it was yesterday, if she had had a fair assessment then and today, Gvaramia would not have said what he says now. She knows very well that the man was committing a lot of abominations when he was at the General Prosecutor's Office and now he has robbed Rustavi 2. Viola von Cramon knows this, but speaks something else. Why? Because she is the protector of criminals," Kobakhidze said.
