Opposition activist beaten up

2009-06-01 11:14

On Sunday evening in Tbilisi one young activist was beaten up. It was Melor Vachnadze, one of the three young men who had been previously accused of beating up a Public TV journalist and detained, and then released on Patriarch's request.


The witnesses claim Vachnadze was attacked by several people in civil clothes, who beat him for no obvious reason.

The incident occurred in Orbeliani Square, not so far from Freedom Square. Witnesses state Vachnadze's attackers arrived in taxi.

Emergency was called, and took the aggrieved to the hospital. The doctor who examined him, said there was no obvious injuries, but further examinations will follow.

In the hospital Melor Vachnadze was visited by Public Defender's envoys and Salome Zourabishvili, the Way of Georgia leader. The latter called on doctors to keep the activist inside, as, according to her words, there were many policemen in the hospital yard.
