On July 5, when the state failed to fulfill its main purpose and could not protect neither Lekso Lashkarava, nor other journalists, other citizens of Georgia. Such a statement made today the leader of the “For Georgia” political party.
“I want to express my deep sorrow to Lekso Lashkarava’s family, to the media community, to journalists, to TV Pirveli.
Of course, to me what happened on July 5, when the state failed to fulfill its main purpose and could protect neither Lekso Lashkarava, nor other journalists, other citizens of Georgia, is more than enough for me, I do not need much investigation to make conclusions.
The main reason when the state fails to perform its basic function is the collapse of institutions. Of course, it is the responsibility of the state when there is violence in the country, no matter who is the organizer of this violence or who is the instigator of this violence, of course, it is the responsibility of state institutions to protect the health and lives of every citizen”, - added Giorgi Gakharia.
