The deputies who formally left the ruling Georgian Dream party have distributed another open letter in which they again criticize the US Embassy in Tbilisi.

According to deputies, the American Embassy submitted a written document to the Parliament of Georgia a couple of days ago on judicial reform, which additionally supports their conclusion that all the efforts of the Embassy are aimed at weakening state institutions and strengthening the radical opposition. In addition, it is noted that the document submitted by the Embassy to the Parliament of Georgia contains a number of problematic and absurd instructions.

“Let's start with the fact that the word "must" is used 60 times in the document, while the Embassy makes "recommendations" to the Parliament on specific issues only 9 times. Even this fact shows a completely disrespectful and harsh attitude towards the sovereignty and state institutions of Georgia. Such a document cannot be called "recommendations", but only "instructions", which, unfortunately, reminds us of the Soviet past and evokes the corresponding grave associations”, the statement said.

The deputies affiliated with the Georgian Dream insist that the embassy, which respects the sovereignty of the country, giving recommendations, can talk about the injustice of a particular legal norm, but should not explain how to change it. According to the authors, in recent years there has been a "vicious practice" when representatives of the diplomatic mission directly sat in working groups and participated in the legislative process.

“Such practice is completely unacceptable in a sovereign state, no matter how strategic the partnership between the two states is. We will do our best to prevent this kind of practice in the future and laws”.

The deputies also noted that the US Embassy is asking the Georgian Parliament to change five constitutional norms. At the same time, those that have already received a positive assessment from the Venice Commission. “This is also a manifestation of disrespectful and harsh attitude towards the state”, the former members of the Georgian Dream believe. According to the deputies, the actions of the U.S. diplomatic mission lead them to believe that "weakening the stability of the state is a kind of self-goal for the Embassy”.
