Human Rights Watch: The use of force in Georgia was excessive

2011-05-26 18:36

Experts of international human rights organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) considered excessive and unjustified the use of force to disperse protesters last night on Rustaveli Avenue in centere of Tbilisi. As the "Georgia-News" reports, human rights activists called on Georgian authorities to start an investigation on this incident immediately.


"The government should immediately begin a thorough and impartial investigation of the excessive and disproportionate use of force" - said HRW.

"Even if the demonstration in Tbilisi was unauthorized, the beating of peaceful protesters can not be justified ... The police should be prosecuted for beating the protesters" - the words of the Deputy Director of HRW on Europe and Central Asia Rachel Denber.

But she added that "the government has made a positive step when suggested the protesters an alternative location for the rally before the crackdown began. But the police should never be resorted to beating protesters who posed no threat".
