Last night in Tbilisi a representative of the government and a member of a Georgian NGO were beaten up.


According to Rustavi 2 TV company, last night two unknown criminals attacked David Okitashvili, the head of the Cultural Events department [of Ministry of Culture, Monument Protection and Sport] near his house in the moment he was parking his car in a garage.

According to the doctors of the republican hospital, Okitashvili has a head injury and a concussion. He was supposedly hit with a blunt object. The official himself doesn't believe the attack has any political context and regards it as a robbery attempt.

Kakha Khadolishvili, a representative of the NGO The Research Centre of Border Security and Migration, was also attacked last night and as well taken to the Tbilisi Republican Hospital. Khadolishvili claims there were several armed attackers, who demanded to give them money, reserved for Badri Bisadze.

The NGO head, the husband of the ex-Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, Nino Burjanadze, Badri Bitsadze, calls the incident the political reprisal of the government with its opponents. Nino Burjanadze believes that the attack is directly connected with the April 9th action.

"This government has already proved it is unable to manage the country, and now tries to intimidate and blackmail people with dishonest methods," Burjanadze said.
