Former Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, leader of the Democratic Movement-United Georgia opposition party, Nino Burjanadze said that in the changed political situation, there are grounds for hope for an objective investigation of the events of May 26, 2011
The protest action led by Nino Burjanadze was dispersed by the police on the night of 25 to 26 May 2011 with the use of water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets and batons. Participants of the rally within five days demanded the resignation of Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and were going to break a military parade on the country's Independence Day.
"I'm glad that in Georgia the time came when it makes sense to provide information to investigators and prosecutors. I hope the prosecutors are objectively investigating the events of May 26, and we are sure to obtain triumph of justice, and those who mocked at residents of Georgia, will be brought to justice," said Nino Burjanadze.
