Crowd makes Georgia's Prime Minister to leave protest action

Protesters in Tbilisi marched to the Georgian parliament building and demanded the whole cabinet, including Georgia's Prime Minister Georgy Kvirikashvili, to resign.

The PM briefly appeared before the crowd, and tried to make an address.

He called to "bring the events back within the boundaries of the law" and vowed that the investigation into the murder will resume.

However, his speech was disrupted by the crowd, who started whistling and chanting "leave!"

The rally, sparked by the killing of two teenagers in Tbilisi on December, 2017, began on Thursday afternoon in front of the Georgian Prosecutor General’s office.

The event was organized by Zaza Saralidze, the father of one of the victims. The crowd was angered by the way the prosecutors handled the investigation into the murder case and accused law-enforcers of covering up for the culprits. Protesters demanded resignation of the country’s chief prosecutor Irakly Shotadze.

Saralidze addressed the crowd after the PM, saying that "the demands will not change and the protesters will demand the government’s resignation to the bitter end."
