In Georgia, special forces detained the head of the Saakashvili / GORDON party


According to the Rustavi 2 TV channel, the security forces in Tbilisi detained the head of the opposition United National Movement, Nika Melia, breaking the door of the party office. The political force was founded by the ex-president of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili.

In Tbilisi, security officials detained the head of the opposition United National Movement (UNM) party, Nika Melia. On February 23, Rustavi 2 reported this.

According to the TV channel, special forces broke into the door of the party office, where Melia was with other opposition leaders. During the operation, the security forces used tear gas.

There is a confrontation between the UNM office, law enforcement agencies and supporters of Nika Melia, Rustavi 2 notes. There are detainees besides Melia.

The Georgian Interior Ministry said in a statement that the security forces carried out the court’s decision, and those present at the scene, despite “numerous warnings,” “did not obey the lawful demand of the police and resisted.”

“The police used coercion, proportionate force prescribed by law and special means,” the statement said.

The United National Movement was founded by the ex-president of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, who now lives in Ukraine.

Melia is involved in the case of the assault on the country’s parliament on June 20, 2019, he is called one of the organizers of the assault.

On February 17, the Tbilisi City Court changed the measure of restraint against Melia from bail to arrest. He refused to pay the bail, and the parliament, having satisfied the appeal of the prosecutor’s office, removed his parliamentary immunity.
