Gamkrelidze Calls on Diplomats to React on Attack on Protesters
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 15 Jun.'09 / 18:47

Davit Gamkrelidze, leader of the New Rights party, part of Alliance for Georgia, called on the western diplomats in Tbilisi to react on the incident outside the Tbilisi police headquarters on June 15, in which, he said, police “aggressively and brutally attacked” protesters.

“I call on the ambassadors, including [U.S. ambassador to Georgia John] Tefft and [French ambassador Eric] Fournier to make one more relevant statement. This action by [President] Saakashvili and [Interior Minister Vano] Merabishvili was incited by their [statements],” Gamkrelidze said.

He was referring to the statements made by the French ambassador and by the United States condemning the June 12 incident outside the Parliament. The U.S. statement said that “the attacks by protesters on members of Parliament” on June 12 “crossed a line from free expression of opinion to criminal activity.” And French ambassador said in a statement on June 13 that the incident was an insult of democracy.
