“The State Security Ministry’s action is unprecedented attack against the freedom of speech”, Parliamentary Chairman Zurab Zhvania announced.

“If some representatives of the government decided to go against the society, I will dissociate from this part of the government”, Parliamentary Chairman stated.
Zurab Zhvania considers in this part of government Ministry of Internal Affairs Kakha Targamadze. Zhvania stated that Targamadze threatened Rustavi 2 for several times.
