Meanwhile, opposition members of the de facto parliament of South Ossetia e. წ. They appealed to the Supreme Court to declare the February 16 sitting of the parliament and the decision made there illegal. The statement of opposition MPs is based on the illegality of the session without a quorum. They called the second part of the deputies e. წ. They are accused of seizing power. Part of the de facto MPs, who have been boycotting parliamentary sessions since September last year, are demanding the resignation of de facto Prosecutor General Uruzmag Jagaev and a fair investigation into the murder of Inal Jabiev. Strike e. წ. The deputies met with the representatives of the Tskhinvali community once again and explained their attitude towards the holding of the session on February 16. Opposition lawmakers say the fight should continue through legal means. Zita Besaeva, a representative of the Nikhas party, said that the main thing for them was to maintain the legal basis of the state.
“I am afraid that this precedent will become a rule for them (Bibilov supporters) and they will start making decisions with as many people as they have today. Our main task is to prevent the destruction of our state, the destruction of our state arrangement, because none of them has the right to do so. Everything that has been built so far, one person (president) and 18 deputies can not underline it. This is not their right! There are more people behind us who will also react to the fact that the government does not understand their views, their interests … I believe that we, as the more conscious part of the MPs, should try to force this government to return to the legal framework and work on the laws Accordingly, in accordance with the Constitution, in accordance with international norms. “Otherwise, we will destroy our state with our own hands.”
Another opposition leader, Alexander Pliev, leader of the People’s Party, believes that the opposition should try to achieve justice in the Supreme Court. He said that the whim of one person, even if he is the first person of the state, can not be counterbalanced by the Constitution.
“I have a clear position: if this constitution has already been violated by not one, but by two people – the prosecutor has violated it, he has cleared his foot on it and, as the guarantor of the constitution, the president does not take action, then the question arises , For prosecuting him for certain crimes. And second – I once again appeal to the President to return everything to the legal bed. It is the epicenter of events and subsequent events are a violation of all the fundamental norms of the existence of the state, it does not fit into any framework. So far, there is only one solution – I suggest to my colleagues to go to court with these articles and the evaluation of the prosecutor’s activities. Because this is not just a criminal prosecution, this is a crime against the people of South Ossetia. “Those who violate the constitution of South Ossetia are committing crimes against the people of the republic.”
“We want to return the state to the legal bed. We complained about the violation of the procedure. That is, the 18 MPs did not have the legal right and responsibility to make any decision without a quorum. “We are not sure that the court will consider this without pressure and objectively, but we still hope that the judges who will hear this case will be guided only by the norms of the law and nothing else.” – Says another oppositionist E. წ. MP, David Sanakoev.
