Civil society organizations respond to the events that took place on July 8, 2023

It is alarming that the Ministry of Internal Affairs still continues its tolerant policy towards hate groups.

"Georgian Dream" Continues to Protect the Interests of the Clan

The "Georgian Dream" deliberately prevented the creation of a temporary investigative commission in the Parliament twice, which was supposed to study corruption and other violations in the judicial system. On April 18, fifty opposition MPs registered for the session. This was enough to create a commission.
