"Since the new administration has taken office, very worrying developments have taken place in Georgia: vindictive statements from Georgian Dream Ministers against UNM leaders, firing of journalists, harassment and prosecution of opposition leaders and representatives. The international community - the European Union, the United States and NATO - have firmly expressed their deep concerns about this very negative evolution and have called on the new government to respect the Georgian constitution as well as democratic standards and fundamental values and freedoms," he said.

Mr. Martens noted that "despite these strong warnings, the administration of Prime Minister Ivanishvili has not changed its behavior. On the contrary, its undemocratic practices are escalating: harassing systematically the representatives of the United National Movement, undermining institutions they do not control, etc."
