Gakharia questioned at Prosecutor’s Office over June 20-21 events
Georgian Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia was questioned at the Prosecutor’s Office over the June 20-21 developments in front of the parliament in Tbilisi.
Gakharia spoke with journalists after the questioning and said that now it is important for the investigation to identify the organisers who triggered “an organised and violent raid” on the parliament building.
"Politicians, concrete persons, made the peaceful rally violent, which was followed by organised, violent, systemic storm on the parliament of Georgia," Agenda.ge cited him as saying.
He again explained that to counter the raid the police was "forced to use certain equipment."
The minister also stressed that the main issue for him and the entire government of Georgia is to take care of those citizens who were injured during the dispersal of the rally.
"I will come [in for questioning] as many times as necessary... because we are very well aware where is the truth and we are coming here and telling the truth," Gakharia concluded.
