Georgia's radical opposition handed over video materials which were not made public by media yet to EU special representative for South Caucasus Peter Semneby, leader of Conservative Party Kakha Kukava said.

He said the video footages show torture against people arrested by police recently. Kukava said the footage shows how opposition activists are forced to give evidence.

"These facts must be prevented and investigated. Otherwise, Saakashvili will involve the country to a new confrontation," he said. He said he hopes EU will react to these materials.  

Kukava said dialogue with authorities was also debated with Semneby. Oppositionists explained reasons which make dialogue impossible.
