Public Defender Lists 162 Arrested Protesters
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 28 May.'11 / 20:24

(UPDATE - Two days after the Public Defender released this list of arrested persons, Interior Ministry said on May 30, that discrepancy between the number of people in the list of Public Defender and in the police list is caused by the fact that Public Defender’s list includes not only those people arrested during the break up of the rally on May 26, but also those activists who were arrested before the break up and also those 24 individuals who were arrested in Kintsvisi)

The Georgian Public Defender’s Office (PDO) has published on its website on Saturday list of those arrested by the police during the break up of the protest rally outside the Parliament.

The list includes names of 162 individuals.

The Georgian Interior Ministry released on May 27 its list of arrested persons, which included 105 names.

The Public Defender’s Office said that the list had been compiled after its monitoring teams visited temporary detention centers throughout Georgia in a period between May 26 and May 28.

Detention centers in Tbilisi, Rustavi, Gardabani, Marneuli, Bolnisi, Kaspi, Mtskheta, Telavi, Signagi, Kvareli, Zestaponi, Samtredia, Bagdati, Ozurgeti, Chokhatauri and Lanchkhuti were monitored, according to PDO.

Most of the list is compiled based on data collected on May 27; information from the detention centers in Kaspi and Mtskheta (total of 17 detainees) are dated with May 26.

“It has been found out as a result of the monitoring, that most of the detainees have more or less serious injuries. Several detainees have injuries of serious degree,” PDO said in a statement.

“Detainees say in a conversation that they have sustained injuries both during the dispersal of the rally and after the arrest,” the Public Defender’s Office said, adding that many of the detainees have refused to give a formal testimony to the representatives of the Public Defender’s Office.

The list, released by PDO, includes the names of at least eight protesters, who previously were among those several dozen of people, who were reported as missing.
