Mtavari Arkhi crew assaulted at Georgian Dream’s Kareli office

Mtavari Arkhi journalist Beka Korshia said the channel’s operator “was thrown” two stories out of the Georgian Dream’s office in Kareli.

According to Korshia, a scuffle erupted at the office after the crew arrived seeking a comment from ruling party’s Kareli mayoral candidate Zaza Guliashvili.

The cameraman was transferred to a hospital and is injured but conscious.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs says an investigation has been launched into the incident under Article 124 of the Criminal Code of Georgia, which stipulates less serious or severe health damage by negligence.
