Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Sep.'11 / 19:04

A senior ruling party lawmaker, Giorgi Gabashvili, slammed Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) and accused the legal advocacy group of knowingly disseminating “lies” about the circumstances of death of a protester after the riot police broke up anti-government rally on May 26.

“The organization, which portrays itself as independent and credible one, allows itself to disseminate such lies, to disseminate such information, which, I am sure, they know is absolute lie, absolute fabrication and slander,” MP Gabashvili told Rustavi 2 TV.

“So they will definitely have to apologize for disseminating this information, otherwise we can consider, that it is not an independent non-governmental organization, but it’s simply a part of political games and part of disinformation, which usually are disseminated by political parties,” MP Gabashvili added.
