Member of the “New Righters” Accuses the Police Patrol of Illegal Activities

27/09/05, “Media News” – A member of the Opposition Party “New Righters” - Koka Guntsadze, accuses the Police Patrol of illegal activities. According to Guntsadze, he witnessed an incident involving members of the Police Patrol. Yesterday evening at 9 o’clock, he saw policemen beating up an unknown person near the Central Market. Guntsadze was returning home by car, when he noticed some fuss in the street. Nearly ten policemen were beating and ridiculing a man.

“I left my car and tried to save the man. However, the patrol officers continued to beat him, until I showed them my MP ID-card. Only then they stopped. The policemen told me, that the guy was drunk and was swearing at them” – said Guntsadze.

He also added that the man disappeared soon afterwards without being arrested by the police. The Member of Parliament says that the Patrol Police acted illegally. “If the citizen was guilty, he must have been arrested and not beaten.”

Koka Guntsadze is going to hold a press conference about this fact. No comments are made by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
