Representatives of opposition factions of Tbilisi Sakrebulo left the courtroom, thus expressing their indignation in protest against the decision of the city authorities.


In addition, there happened a squabble between the representative of the faction of "Christian Democrats" Zaza Gabunia and a member of the ruling party "National Movement" Vato Natsvlishvili" but other deputies managed to separate them", said "Georgia-News"

It was member of Sakrebulo, one of the leaders of the Republican Party Tina Khidasheli who suggested to establish a special commission to investigate the events in downtown Tbilisi on May 26.

However, in opinion of the city council member Sevda Ugrekhelidze, Human Rights Commission, which can investigate these events too, already exists in the city council. "I do not see the necessity for a separate committee. I think that the Human Rights Commission exists specialy for investigation of such cases. We are also interested in information about harmed people and the situation in general" - underlined Ugrekhelidze.

Recall, the night of May 26, Georgian police dispersed protesters in the centre of Tbilisi, using water cannons and tear gas. Government explained their actions by the fact that the action of the "National Assembly", which was approval by the authorities, was ended at 00:00 pm on May 26. However, earlier, one of the leaders of the "People's Assembly", Nino Burjanadze, said about plans to continue meetings on May 26, the day of celebration of the 20th anniversary of Georgia's independence, as well as to interfere with the military parade dedicated to this celebration.

As a result of events of that night two men were killed and about 40 people were delivered to hospital, another 90 people were arrested.
