Criminal reports from Tbilisi2009-04-29 13:18
The game of nerves declared by the opposition is accompanied by the war of fists. Last night near the Parliament building the protesters were beaten again. A few hours before this incident a Rusatavi-2 journalist fell victim to the unknown assaulters. Neither police nor opposition takes responsibility for the beatings.
Last night two participants of the protest actions near the building of Georgian parliament were severely beaten. According to the victims they were looking for a shop to buy cigarettes when around 20 people assaulted them near Iveria Hotel and beat them in silence. At the same time Maestro TV reported on a new beating incident. A car with the oppositionists going back home was stopped by another car with unknown persons starting a cruel massacre of the protesters.
Simultaneously one of the oppositionists attacked Levan Kalandia, a Rustavi-2 cameraman. He thinks these were protesters. The demonstrators stated these had been most probably provokers as nobody knew them by sight. It will be remarked the opposition leaders advocate violence-free struggle.
Uncatchable masters of fist fights operate not only in the capital. Rosbalt reports on the attack against Alliance for Georgia regional HQ leader in Kakhetia Vano Lomidze. He says some unknown persons first dragged him out of the car, then beat him and threw in the Khrami River. His car was burned down.
There are almost no incidents in front of the President's Chancellery in Rustaveli Avenue and Public TV by daytime. This morning the protesters didn't wait for the city authorities to take care of them and set up WCs and swept the streets clean. They had been given brooms two weeks before after the incident with the smash of the equipment in the press center of the protesters.
Who is operating on Tbilisi streets by night? After the latest beating incident in front of the parliament David Gamkrelidze chairing the New Rights accused the government of the current events expressing regret that even on the repentance day announced by Ilia II the authorities resorted to violence.
Partial justification of the opposition's accusations is the incident with ex head of Interior Ministry Inspectorate General who threw a pack of water from the official building balcony down on the protesters.
