Georgian Public Defender Levan Ioseliani condemned violence on the part of the “aggressive groups” against youngsters at the Individual Freedom Institute Camp in Borjomi and the attack on Girchi-More Freedom party leader Zurab Japaridze.
The Public Defender said in his statement that he would monitor and study the facts within his mandate.
“Public Defender calls on law enforcers to react promptly and effectively in order to ensure the security of underage persons and to lead an investigation in each crime fact to determine if they were preliminarily organized and reveal responsible persons,” reads the statement.
Approximately 60 unknown individuals threw stones at a hotel in Borjomi, where the opposition Girchi-More Freedom party had to hold training.
The party’s press service earlier reported that Girchi-More Freedom leader Zurab Japaridze had been physically assaulted. The incident left his eye injured.
