Activist of Free Georgia Beaten in Dedoplistskaro

18.06.2012
Activist of the political party Free Georgia Ato Ovsepian, 25, was beaten in Sabatlo village, Dedoplistskaro district. His mother told ICK that her son was found unconscious but police and ambulance did not arrive at the place in time.

“He was working in the watermelon plantation. I do not know what happened there but I was told he was unconscious. Somebody ruthlessly beat him but I do not know who and why beat him,” Liana Ovsepian said.

Tamlia Gurashvili, head of Dedoplistskaro district office of Free Georgia said she gave party newspapers to Ato Ovsepian to disseminate in the village; the village governor threatened him for it. “They were threatening him with creating problems unless he quitted opposition party. Liana’s sister works at the library and she was also summoned to the district administration. Village governor warned Ato to mind his behavior,” Gurashvili said.

ICK could not get in touch with Davit Gundadze, village governor; his cell phone is switched off.
