Prime – Minister Giorgi Gakharia commented on the murder of 35-year-old Davit Mumladze, where the possible crime of police officers is mentioned. Gakharia noted that if such facts were confirmed, the approach would be much more rigorous and ruthless.

“I would like to address a serious case that took place last week, when two out of five murder suspects turned out to be police officers. Of course, this is a heavy component, a grave consequence, of course. But we must also bear in mind that this single case cannot cast a shadow over the 40,000 people who serve this country with dignity, at the risk of losing their lives. We also have to understand, and we have repeatedly noted that when a law enforcer commits a crime without taking into account the interests of the system as a whole, we will be much tougher and our approach will be absolutely ruthless, because no one will ever be able to cast doubt on the service of thousands of honest police officers. However, of course, we should not tolerate such cases. That is why reforms have been launched at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which is called systemic renewal. And that is why it is imperative for us to change the values of our police in terms of both the citizen and their functions, duties and responsibilities towards the country, as well as increasing the efficiency of their daily work", - said Giorgi Gakharia.

"Cyber Attack really suits to the recent on-going events of the country" - Diana Trapaidze on Cyber Attack on TV Pirveli http://rustavi2.ge/en/news/141461

For the past ten hours, TV Pirveli has been in emergency mode. Independent television has lost access to its main server, video archive and all the video material the company has been collecting for five years. After the cyber attack, the TV Pirveli failed to air the news again. Broadcasting was only partially restored.
"In fact, the video archive has been destroyed, the server, the technical base that can deliver the material to the viewer, is under attack and cannot be used. In fact we can only broadcast in live mode. The news can"t be aired so I will try to live stream only what is happening with one camera and several switching devices, which will pass it on to the viewer. Video material that needs to be processed properly is still not available and we are trying to find alternative resources. In the context of recent events, what is happening in the country, the cyber attack really suits to it, but I will wait until the end. However, the first thing we know of is a type of cyber attack, a crypto virus that completely malfunctions the server and destroys all of its contents. There is nothing in our technical base,” - Diana Trapaidze said.
Special group of the Ministry of Internal Affairs recently arrived to the TV Pirveli. According to the "Courier," investigation is under control of people who conducted investigative procedures on the case of TBC Bank, they could not revealed anything despite the fact they knew the address - Rustaveli 12, from where the cyber attack happened.
