A group of persons, regarding themselves as a “Union of Orthodox Parents” intruded on the territory of TV station “Kavkasia” (Caucasus) during the live air on May 7, 2010.
The members of the group physically abused several program guests and the staff of the TV station.

Therefore, we condemn the attempt of fascist terror and any kind of pressure resorted over the journalistic activity and freedom of expression in Georgia.
We express our solidarity towards our colleagues and demand prompt fact-finding investigation of the case and punishment of the organizers in line with the law.

Tbilisi, May 8, 2010
