Police detained a Georgian opposition leader


Georgian police stormed the room where the leader of the opposition United National Movement party, Nick Melia, was and detained him. According to the Georgian service of Radio Liberty “Echo of the Caucasus”, the police used special means, including pepper gas.

The special operation in the office of the United National Movement is now over, police officers are leaving the building where the party’s office is located, where doors and furniture have been damaged. Several opposition supporters needed medical attention.

The storming of the central office of Georgia’s largest opposition party began at about 7:30 a.m. Tbilisi time. The Ministry of Internal Affairs called on opposition supporters not to interfere with the detention of Nika Melia.

The night before, parliament approved Irakli Garibashvili as Georgia’s prime minister. He called Nick Melia a “criminal” and announced the execution of a court decision against him.

Garibashvili’s predecessor, Giorgi Gahariya, resigned as prime minister on February 18. He said he disagreed with the ruling team over the execution of a court ruling against opposition leader Nika Melia, who became chairman of the EPR late last year. On February 17, the Tbilisi City Court changed the measure of restraint against Melia from bail to arrest. Melia is accused of organizing and leading group violence at protests in front of the parliament building in June 2019 after the visit of Russian MP Sergei Gavrilov. Melia’s defense calls the court’s decision politically motivated.
