Late at night, journalists with cameras arrived at the house of Roland Akhalaia and tried to get him to comment on the resignation of his son. After some time, about 70 supporters of the "United National Movement" arrived here and drove the journalists away using force. A few of the journalists got hit in the face.

Recall, the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Bacho Akhalaia has resigned due to scandal that erupted after the uproar around torture of prisoners in the Tbilisi prison. Akhalaia resigned on Thursday evening.

"I do not lead the penitentiary system for a year, but some of its leaders were obliged to prevent such outrageous facts and started to work in the system under my leadership. Accordingly, I bear moral and political responsibility, so I have appealed to the president with a request on resignation", said in Akhalaia's statement on the web page of the department.

The new Minister of Corrections was appointed Eka Sguladze.
