TBILISI, DFWatch – The pressure group Georgian Young Lawyer’s Association says supporters of the opposition Georgian Dream coalition are regularly subject to pressure in the eastern Kakheti region of Georgia.

GYLA expresses concern over what is happening and asks the authorities to take action to prevent political persecution.
