Nobody neither from Washington nor Europe has questions about the legitimacy of use of force on the night of June 20-21 – Bidzina Ivanishvili, Chairman of Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia Party told journalists.

Ivanishvili said that in case of questions, the Minister of Internal Affairs would be held responsible. According to Ivanishvili, after June 20 developments, the opposition and parties associated with National Movement demanded resignation of Minister of Internal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia.

“The use of force was legitimate. The question about the issue arises from nowhere. I met with members of the European Parliament, Ambassadors and know the standpoint of Washington,” Ivanishvili said.

Protests in front of the parliament building at Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi have been held since June 20 in reaction to the visit of Sergey Gavrilov, a Russian lawmaker and his sitting in the parliamentary speaker’s chair during a religious assembly, which many Georgians saw as an unwelcome reminder of Russian military occupation of its breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The demand of resignation of Minister of Internal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia has remained unchanged of the protest in front of the parliament building since June 21 after the so-called Gavrilov Night when the protest was dispersed by the riot police with the use of tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon. About 240 people both civilians and law-enforcers were injured during the night of June 20-21.
