Bakhtadze: no questions must remain unanswered about Tbilisi rally dispersal
Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze said no question marks must remain regarding the June 20 rally dispersal in Tbilisi, which came after groups of demonstrators tried to storm the parliament building.
"We must give a legal assessment of the incidents where possible abuses of power took place," the Georgian PM said.
He said that there are no question marks whether the use of force was legitimate. "Unfortunately, the dispersal left some injured and if several law enforcers used excessive force, the investigation will reveal this," Bakhtadze added.
The PM stressed that the investigation of the June 20 events is going on "very transparently."
Bakhtadze said that the “attempts of the United National Movement to display the attack on parliament as patriotism is cruelty and anti-state.”
