A Dispersal at the Presidential Residence in Avlabari

The cells and the demonstrators at the presidential residence in Avlabari were dispersed yesterday night. The demonstrators at the Avlabari residence released this information. According to them, at night on June 18, some people dressed in police and civilian uniforms came and began dispersing the demonstrators and the cells.

According to representatives of the opposition who immediately came to the scene, it was the next provocation of the government which aimed to threaten the society.

The demonstrators already have restored the dispersed cells. According to them, some demonstrators were beaten and some demonstrators cannot be found.

Irina Jabauri, a press secretary of the Movement for the United Georgia, said that they could not connect with three activists of their party. “The activists of our movement, who participated in the demonstration at the Avlabari residence, disappeared without leaving a trace.

The Ministry of Internatal affairs has not confirmed the information about the dispersal of the demonstrators at the Avlabari residence.
