Vano Merabishvili, the Interior Minister, explained why May 6th was declared the Day of Georgian Police - Interfax.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We decided to choose a new date which will leave Georgian society content, as on May 6th the St.George's Day and Day of liberation of Ajaria from Aslan Abashidze regime is marked," he stated in the open letter published in local media.
"So far the Georgian police marked its professional day on November 10 - a police day and November 30 - security officers' day. Both of these dates were total anachronism, because the first one marked the establishment of the Soviet police and the second one - Soviet Cheka [Bolshevik secret police and a predecessor of the Soviet security bodies - NKVD and then KGB]," Merabishvili says in the letter - Civil.ge.
