"Minister of Internal Affairs is lying" - Grigol Vashadze

"There are thousands of witnesses and they insist that the violation of the law was the fact during the night of June 20. No one has been warned," - said the leader of the "United National Movement," the leader of the "United Opposition" Grigol Vashadze.
Grigol Vashadze responded to the interview given by the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs. Kakhaber Sabanadze said that during the night of June 20 the citizens did not know about the dispersal of the protest. This statement of Sabanadze contradicts the Interior Minister"s interview. He said that the protesters were warned four times.
"The Minister of Internal Affairs is lying, this is proved by the statement of Sabanadze. The government should realize that the tragedy of June 20-21 is the milestone through their governance. It is no longer possible for "Georgian Dream" to wield the power. It is a matter of time, that will be better for the government to take political and moral responsibility. Giorgi Gakharia is not the Minister of Internal Affairs anymore," - said Grigol Vashadze.
