Topic: Giorgi Gongadze


In the News (Thu 17 Apr 14)

  
  Science Fair Projects - Giorgi Sanaia
Giorgi Sanaia, sometimes spelled as Giorgi Sanaya (in Georgian: გიორგი სანაია) (1975-2001) was a Georgian television journalist of an independent broadcasting company Rustavi 2 who was murdered in controversial circumstances in 2001.
Fearing violent riots in Tbilisi similar to those in the Ukraine after President Leonid Kuchma was implicated in journalist Giorgi Gongadze's death, the Georgian government acted much more effectively than the Ukrainian one and managed to avoid the main accusation that Kuchma faced-an unwillingness to react.
Giorgi Sanaia was survived by a wife and a son.

 Launching a new inquiry into the murder of the Ukrainian journalist Georgiy Gongadze
In this respect, the Assembly refers to the findings of the representatives of the International Federation of Journalists, the National Union of Journalists of the UK and Ireland, the Institute of Mass Information and the Gongadze Foundation, which were issued on October 1, 2004, and shares the concerns expressed therein.
The Assembly regrets that the Verkhovna Rada inquiry commission was prevented from presenting its report on Gongadze and Alexandrov cases to a plenary session of the parliament.
Stressing the importance of the Gongadze case for freedom of speech in Europe and democracy in Ukraine, the Assembly decides to follow closely and report on the legal and procedural developments of the investigation of the Gongadze case, in particular as regards:

A group of demonstrators later pitched a tent on the square to continue the protest, which was launched by several political parties, including the Socialists and nationalists, under the slogan "Ukraine Without Kuchma." The organizers are appealing to Kyiv residents to take part in a protest march on 19 December.
The "Find Gongadze!" Citizen Action Group staged a demonstration on December 15 during the official closing ceremony for the Chornobyl nuclear power plant.
Melnychenko confirmed his previous allegation that journalist Heorhiy Gongadze was kidnapped by an Interior Ministry special task force, on Kuchma's instruction to Interior Ministry Yuriy Kravchenko.

 Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Yushchenko targets privatisation 'theft'
Yet greater focus has been placed on the death of the opposition internet journalist Giorgi Gongadze, found beheaded in 2000.
Mr Yushchenko has said that he "owes it to Giorgi" to pursue the investigation of his death, and has declared he will rename the street where Mr Kuchma's administration was based after the journalist.
Mr Kuchma was yesterday reported to have gone for a brief holiday to a 14th-century spa in Karlovy Vary, 81 miles west of Prague, in the Czech Republic.

Giorgi Kandelaki and Luka Tsuladze were arrested along with a Belarusian opposition activist, Uladzimir Kabets, and taken to a police station.
The Kmara activists reportedly arrived in Minsk from Kyiv last week to support members of a youth association called The Third Path who could be charged with defaming the president in connection with satirical Internet cartoons (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 18 August 2005).
The law stipulates that parliamentary elections to the 450-seat legislature are to be held under a fully proportional, party-list system.

Oleg Rybachuk, head of the presidential secretariat, said "there were more than enough" reasons for the sacking of Svyatoslav Piskun.
Many believe the dismissal was fuelled by his slow investigation into the beheading of journalist Giorgi Gongadze.
Mr Piskun said he was happy at the news as he could now involve himself in politics.

 EurasiaNet Civil Society - Azerbaijan: Murder Investigation Sparks Increasing Controversy
On April 18, Andreas Gross and Andreas Herkel, co-rapporteurs of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), arrived in Baku to report on preparations for this November’s parliamentary elections, and met with Huseinov’s family in the Polish embassy.
The Baku-based daily newspaper Echo has reported that PACE may appoint a special rapporteur for Huseinov’s case as it did when Giorgi Gongadze, an ethnic Georgian journalist, was killed in Ukraine in 2000.
Rushana Huseinova indicated that she might emulate the example of Gongadze’s wife, Miroslava, who took her husband’s murder case to the European Court of Human Rights when the Ukrainian investigation stalled.

He said that Giorgi Sanaia was “the best representative of Rustavi 2… He could talk to all parties.” He thought it was dangerous to broadcast programmes like Sanaia’s “60 Minutes” because such investigative reporting could lead to reprisal killings by unhappy subjects.
The Gongadze affair was obviously aimed at unseating President Kuchma, something which (to date) it has still failed to do.
Should the contents of the Georgian cassette (which is a video, not audio, cassette, as was the case in Ukraine) be made public, the same pressures could be expected to build up on Shevardnadze, if only because of guilt by association.

 Capitol Grilling: Dead Journalist - Part II
On July 26, 2001, Georgian journalist Giorgi Sanaia was murdered.
The other most recent high-profile killing of a journalist in these parts was the murder of half-Georgian half-Ukrainian journalist Giorgi Gongadze, whose headless body was found in November 2000.

 GEORGIA - SOUTH CAUCASUS
The book by Giorgi Gabeskiria, “Where a Georgian comes to”, has a certain value for us because of its characteristic and very balanced apologia for Georgianhood, which invariably increases in a reader the vitality of national self-consciousness, spiritually encourages him/her and “arouses a desire to achieve a perfect future”.
Although the author of the book is not a professional historian, the quality of his work vastly exceeds the level of amateurish attempts of some authors, obsessed by historical ambitions.
The works of Guram Mgebrishvili, Giorgi Gegechkori, Tamaz Khutsishvili, Koka Ignatovi and Sergo Kobuladze have also been used.

Despite the evidence implicating President Leonid Kuchma in the murder of independent journalist Heorhiy Gongadze, and the protests triggered by those revelations, it seems unlikely that Kuchma's political future is threatened.
It is now almost three months since the Gongadze case made headlines in the Ukrainian and world press, but nothing has been definitively clarified since then.
Officially, a body found near Kyiv and widely believed to be Gongadze's was identified by genetic tests as Gongadze's only "to the extent of 99.6 percent." And this means, that Gongadze is not dead from the legal point of view.

Salaries were up - as much as 57% for teachers, doctors and civil servants - and press freedom better protected.
The murder of 31-year-old online journalist Giorgi Gongadze in September 2000, found headless in a ditch after investigating government corruption, became a touchstone issue for Ukraine's democracy movement in the years before the orange revolution.
It is alleged tapes exist linking the former president, Leonid Kuchma, to the killing, but criticism has grown with the failure of investigators to get any closer to solving the murder since he stepped down.

 The Observer | International | Ukraine stands on brink of unknown
The Yuschenko team is preparing to form an administration, with his inner circle rife with debate as to how he will satisfy his powerful backers with posts.
On Friday, Yuschenko even said he would not use the current presidential administration as his offices, but move elsewhere and rename the street after the opposition journalist Giorgi Gongadze, whom the opposition accuse the government of having murdered.
The final days of campaigning have been remarkably subdued, the opposition acting as if any further agitation could only dent its big lead.

In 2000, the headless body of opposition journalist Giorgi Gongadze was found in woodland near Kiev and Kuchma was accused of complicity in his death, a charge he denies.
Gongadze’s death and the refusal to hold an adequate inquiry into his murder have become a rallying point for the Ukrainian opposition to Kuchma’s regime.
In the past months there have been the biggest rallies in Kiev since the fall of the Soviet Union.

This frustrating experience has prompted me to support the present motion aimed at strengthening the legal framework in the fight against enforced disappearances in general.
In Ukraine, the disappearance of the journalist Georgiy Gongadze in 2000, and the botched criminal investigation in the presence of serious allegations of the involvement of senior representatives of the state was one of the detonators of the "Orange Revolution".
Our colleague Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger is mandated to look into this matter in a separate report.
