Georgian ex-dictator quarrels with Ukrainian president

This 20 September 2013 video is called Torture Tape Rage: Thousands protest Georgian prison horror.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Protesters demand justice in shocking prison abuse scandal

Sunday 23 September 2012

Thousands rallied again on Friday in Georgia to demand the prosecution of ministers fired in a prison abuse scandal.

The protests, sparked by graphic videos showing guards in the Gldani prison in Tbilisi brutally beating prisoners and raping them with truncheons and broom handles, have ratcheted up the pressure on President Mikheil Saakashvili.

This sexual torture scandal led to the downfall of the regime of Saakashvili. He fled Georgia, as the post-dictatorship government might prosecute him for abuse of power. After Saakashvili had fled from justice, his Georgian citizenship was declared forfeited.

Saakashvili went to Ukraine. He still knew its president Poroshenko from his student days. Poroshenko granted Saakashvili asylum. He also gave him Ukrainian citizenship. And the governorship of Odessa province. Quite a different treatment from most refugees coming to Ukraine, some of whom land in torture prisons.

This video about Ukraine says about itself:

President Poroshenko’s Secret Offshore Deals Revealed

3 April 2016

There’s no ‘blind trust’. President Poroshenko lied about his business assets, a tax evasion scheme is involved.

Today, however, there is news that Saakashvili is no longer governor of Odessa. He quarrels now with Poroshenko, whom he accuses now of covering up corruption.
