Opposition staged a protest action in Tbilisi

2009-09-29 10:29

Yesterday Georgian opposition resumed protest actions near the Parliament. It's not known whtetherr these would be regular, but the organizers declared yesterday "the beginning of Saakashvili and his government's demise".


Instead of promised 50 000 people only several dozens gathered. Opposition leaders also attended the action: Levan Gachechildze, Gubaz Sanikidze [National Forum], Georgi Tsagareishvili [opposition MP], Kakha Kukava [the Conservative Party], Sozar Subari [ex-ombudsman, Alliance for Georgia ] .

The cause for the rally was the statement of President Saakashvili over the killing of a policeman. He said that the policy of pardoning should be restricted, and policemen must be given right to use weapons. Saakashvili also noted that the policeman was killed by one of those whom opposition ardently defended at rallies.

The opposition was outraged by the fact that the killer of a policeman, Rati Rekhviashvili, was made equal to the young people who fell victims to the police's reprisal - Sandro Girgvliani, Bute Robakidze and many others.

The rally participants addressed the Parliament with a demand to establish a special commission to investigate all the notorious murders. They submitted an application to the Parliament's chancellery; Georgi Tsagareishvili promised to do everything possible to let this commission be established and work effectively.

The rallying presented the ultimatum: the commission must be founded to October 14th, otherwise opposition turns to drastic measure, though didn't mention what ones.
