Campaigner beaten in the head with brick on Election Day

by | Nov 7, 2013

TBILISI, DFWatch–Police are investigating an attack on the head of the campaign office for Georgian Dream candidate Giorgi Margvelashvili in Sagarejo, in eastern Georgia, in the evening of Election Day.

Ivane Kvrivishvili was attacked by members of the Georgian Dream coalition. He says four people beat him with blunt objects, resulting in a brain concussion.

“I tried to get rid of them for 25 minutes. They hit me in my face with a brick. My nose broke. I don’t remember much,” he said.

Kvrivishvili thinks the attack has to do with his party activity. He added that there was aggression against him also earlier, before Election Day.

Police have questioned those involved and launched an investigation. The attackers confirm to news agency Pirveli that there was a confrontation but deny that they beat Kvrivishvili.
