British Minister for Europe, David Lidington, called on the Georgian authorities to investigate "fully" events of May 26 involving break up of the protest rally, which led to death of at least two people.
“I was saddened to hear of violence on the streets of Tbilisi," he said in a statement on May 27. "Whilst there is a place for legal protest and demonstrations in any democracy, there can be no place for violence."
"I hope that all will renounce such actions. I encourage the Georgian Government to investigate fully the events of the past 24 hours,” Lidington said.
