Dear Mr.President, Congressmen and Senators:
We have received a volume of documents suggesting that the Lugar Center located around Tbilisi, Georgia, was engaged in experiments banned by the U.N. Convention of 1972 on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction.
To my mind, these documents need to be reviewed and evaluated by experts. I have no intentions to politicize the issue or to allege anybody. But I can neither keep secret the Center’s activity that may violate the Convention mentioned above.
Giving your friendly stance towards Georgian people, I call on you to set up an investigation into legality of experiments run by the Lugar Center’s personnel acting upon authorization of the Obama administration and under agreement with former President of Georgia, M.Saakashvili.
Neither I, nor my fellow citizens in Georgia and abroad want to see declassified papers in a few dozens of years – as we have already seen it in the recent past – which would confirm our today’s fears about biological and bacteriological experiments run on Georgians.
Georgian people will be sincerely grateful to you if you liberate our pained country, which the United Nations has put on the list of ‘Dying Nations’, from threats represented by dual-use biological and bacteriological experiments.
I hope for your understanding and support.
With kind regards, The Head of Georgia Abroad Civic Movement Igor Giorgadze
