Protests Demanding Punishment of the Guilty Continue


Protests Demanding Punishment of the Guilty Continue

NGOs again reminded the Minister of Internal Affairs to punish the murders of ‘United Georgian Bank’ employee, Sandro Girgvliani. On 18th April, they gathered on Republic Square, honking their car horns - symbolically sounding a ‘Sign of Life’. The organizers of the protest were detained by the police but were soon released.

At about 12 o’clock, representatives of the ‘Equality Institute’, as well as relatives and friends of Sandro Girgvliani, started protesting to Parliament using car horns, megaphones and placards. Their only demand was that the true murders of Sando Girgvliani be punished and they called upon the government to ensure this happens.

The protestors drove to the buildings of the State Chancellery, Parliament and the Ministry of Security, where they stuck placards. The protest did not go entirely smoothly. When the protestors attempted to block off Rustaveli Avenue, the police detained some of the organizers for obstructing traffic. Irakli Kakabadze and Lasha Chkhartishvili were among those detained, however they were soon released on Tavisupleba (Freedom) Square.

Beside NGOs, relatives and friends of Girgviliani also participated in the protest. They are sure that the investigators already know who the murders are, but those who are guilty are protected because they are the employees at the Ministry of Internal Affairs. 

The protestors agreed to hold continuous protests until the truth is revealed and justice is achieved.

Yesterday, the Prosecutor’s Office refused to satisfy the request of Girgvliani family to remove the current prosecutor from the case.
