"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".
