The Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs admits that the protesters were not informed about the raid of the night of June 20. In the interview with "Kviris Palitra" Kakha Sabanadze said that due to the tense situation in front of the parliament there was no time for the warning.
The statement of Mr Sabanadze is utterly different from the statements of Giorgi Gakharia. The Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs also said that peaceful demonstrators were not injured during the night of June 20.
The rally was held in front of the Parliament. This was the response to the visit of the Russian MP in the Parliament of Georgia. Citizens gathered and demanded the resignation of Irakli Kobakhidze. Late night, law enforcers used tear gas, rubber/rocket bullets, and water cannons to disperse citizens. The Minister of Internal Affairs said that the decision about the use of force is under his responsibility and his desire was to protect the building of the Parliament.
