Georgia, Tbilisi, Jan. 13 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili thinks that amnestying Russian spies is a challenge for the country's security. Saakashvili told media today that the Georgian authorities have not made an action inherent in self-respecting country.
He added that the spies whose guilt has been proven were amnestied. And there is no doubt.
All political prisoners recognized by the Georgian parliament have left the prisons today.
The Amnesty Law came into force on January 13. After the Georgian President refused to sign the amnesty bill, it was signed by Chairman of the Parliament David Usupashvili.
Military action was launched in the Georgian region of South Ossetia on Aug.8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied the city of Tskhinvali and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August of that year.
