Tbilisi, Georgia, July 5
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has urged to curb any attempts of destabilizing the situation in the country.
"I would like to address the police with a call to continue suppressing all such incidents [that destabilize the situation]. Nobody should be above the law, and no one can ignore or violate it, no matter what high post that person occupies," Garibashvili told reporters on July 5.
Yesterday late at night, the Tbilisi city court sentenced the ex-mayor of Tbilisi, Gigi Ugulava to a two-month pre-trial detention.
This was followed by a scuffle in the court's yard, which resulted in the arrest of several people. One person injured in the brawl was taken to hospital.
Georgia's Interior Ministry said today that four persons were detained during the incident in front of the courthouse.
The detained persons are Georgia's former ambassador to Italy Konstantin Gabashvili, MP Levan Bejashvili, David Gogokhiya and Gocha Darjaniya.
They were detained in accordance with the articles 166 and 173 (disorderly conduct and resisting police officers) of the Georgian Code of Administrative Offences.
