Defense squads formed in Georgia

2009-04-16 16:16

Georgian opposition, which has been staging mass anti-presidential protest actions in Tbilisi for a week, formed defense squads.


Such measures are taken in the light of the increased number of violence against supporters and activists of the opposition, said Bidzina Gujabidze, the Conservative party representative.

"We had to establish defense squads to protect order in the territories, around the places where protest actions are staged. Unknown masked people with clubs attack opposition supporters, such cases happen near the places where actions are staged, they do not come too close", - Gujabidze said.

He explained that the "squads will count about 100 opposition activists, unarmed, and their only aim will be prevention of violence". First such squads will start work in the evening of April 15th.

"We will take away weapons from everyone we will detain, will take away documents to identify, and we cannot rule out that we will take away clothes. And if somebody sees naked people in the city, they will realize these were sent by the authorities to deal shortly with opposition ", Gujabidze said.
