At a solidarity rally in front of the Ministry of Justice building where demonstrators requested an investigation into facts of pressure on journalists.
The event was attended by national and regional media representatives and non-governmental organizations.
Journalist Zviad Koridze said at the rally that journalists suffer from total persecution especially in the regions.
"Facts of violence and pressure are utterly uninvestigated. There have not been any instances of punishment of an official that hampered journalists in their work," said Koridze.
According to Shorena Shaverdashvili, editor of "Liberal" magazine, there are a lot of uninvestigated facts regarding journalists, including last year’s 26 May incidents.
Pavle Kublashvili, Chairman of the Parliament’s Committee of Legal Issuers, arrived at the rally and said journalists were doing important job and it should not be hampered.
Journalist Magda Popiashvili handed over a poster saying ‘Do Not Hamper’ to Pavle Kublashvili.
