According to local media, demonstrators expressed their disagreement over the level of force used... Еще during the special operation carried out by the Ministry of Internal Affairs at the nightclubs. One of the protest spokespersons, Baia Pataraia, claimed that the police action “was a huge human rights violation. This is not the way a democratic government should fight against drug use.” She added that the «drug trafficking problem is a huge problem which is covered and lobbied by very high and influential people, and it would be much better if the government was able and the police was able to arrest those people, and not those people who just use drugs.» The Ministry of Internal Affairs stated that eight drug traffickers were detained, according to reports.
