Akhali Taoba writes that opposition political parties have become suspicious of a "political terror" in the country and the Republican Party is not exempt. The article says the Republican Party has become suspicious of a political terror since a criminal case was filed against party leader David Usupashvili's brother.
According to Akhali Taoba, Republicans make other accusations against the government. They say law enforcement bodies have detained and severely beat a staff member of the Ministry of Justice. Khidasheli stated that he had been tortured to give the evidence against David Usupashvili's brother. The paper states Republicans aren't going to be silent about the incident and threaten to declare what has happened throughout the world. The paper reports that they demand the government to abstain from carrying similar actions since political revenge will not be of any help to them.
