French Ambassador to Georgia Diego Colas called on the Georgian government to protect all, including the minorities and press.
“We, diplomats, had a meeting yesterday at the Ministry of Interior. We reaffirmed strong disappointment with the breakdown of constitutional order, massive violations of human rights on July 5 in Tbilisi. Instead of divisive words, we called on the government to recommit to protect all, including minorities and press,” French Ambassador tweeted.
Fifty-five persons, among them fifty-three media representatives, were assaulted during the anti-Tbilisi Pride rally on July 5, according to the Interior Ministry. Tbilisi Pride cancelled the scheduled march amid violent protests.
