Regional information centers appeal to Chief Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia to immediately investigate the fact. We call upon the Public Defender of Georgia, human rights nongovernmental organizations to respond to similar facts. We call upon the Imereti regional administration and Zestaponi district administration to allow the journalist to enter local self-governmental office, to travel and to work in the district without obstacles.
