Three rallies are scheduled to take place in Tbilisi today.
Axar.az reports citing Agenda. Ge portal.
One of them, held in support of individuals detained during the June 20 protests in Tbilisi, has already begun. The rally, which started at 11 a.m., calls upon the public to join them to “make the court” deliver fair verdicts for those detained during the June 20 rally in central Tbilisi, which was sparked by the presence of Russian MPs in the country and in the Georgian parliament.
Five individuals detained during the rally were declared guilty yesterday. However, four of them were released from the court as they have already spent three days in prison.
The fifth will leave prison when his five-day-term expires. The Georgian Interior Ministry says that of the 305 detained, 121 were sentenced to several-day administrative imprisonment, while others have been released. The second rally with the use of cars is scheduled for 2 p.m. today, when demonstrators in their cars will go to the Interior Ministry building, demanding the resignation of Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia.
The main rally on the Rustaveli Avenue will resume at 7 p.m, with its demands unchanged: the resignation of Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia, snap parliamentary elections must be held and with the use of only the proportional electoral system, demonstrators detained on June 20 must be released.
