Five senior members of the Department of Constitutional Security and other Interior Ministry departments were detained today in the morning on suspicion of "abuse of power" and "false imprisonment", the ITAR-TASS reports.


This information was announced by the lawyers of the detainees. The officials were detained after their interrogation, which lasted throughout last night. The Prosecutor General's office has confirmed the arrest, but noted that "an official statement on the matter will be made later today".

Meanwhile, as reported by the Trend, European Parliament is going to clarify the reasons for the arrest of former ministers in Georgia. European Parliament President Martin Schulz said this at a joint news conference with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili in Brussels.

"In my country - Germany, we do not arrest former ministers. I refrain from estimates of arrests in Georgia, since I intend to investigate the situation. My assistants have already been instructed to study the situation and give me reports; then I will make a statement", Schultz said.

According to him, the situation in Georgia is "very important" for the EU.
