Georgian opposition deputy beaten

From ISN:

Georgian authorities say an opposition lawmaker and beer brewery official was beaten and left in a forest in Georgia, local media reported on Thursday. Attackers seized Tamaz Kacheishvili near his home in the capital Tbilisi late on Wednesday and tied him to a tree in the woods outside the capital. He was found by a shepherd and hospitalized with a concussion, cuts, and bruises. Kacheishvili is a Right Opposition deputy in the national parliament, which is dominated by supporters of President Mikhail Saakashvili. Valeri Gelashvili, a member of the opposition Republican Party, was severely beaten last month by attackers. He claimed he had been beaten by members of a department of the Interior Ministry.
