Civil activists’ protest underway in front of Wrestling Federation

Civil activists are holding a rally in support of wrestler Zurab Datunashvili in front of the Wrestling Federation.

According to the protesters, the President of the Wrestling Federation, Gega Gegeshidze, should immediately resign, as he is an abuser and no abuser should be the President of the Wrestling Federation.

Elene Khoshtaria, a member of European Union, joined the protesters. According to her, she joined the protest as an ordinary citizen who cannot put up with the injustice in the federation.

Gega Gegeshidze was detained on January 11 in connection with the incident that occurred between him and European champion Zurab Datunashvili in the Sport Palace. The city court released him on 5 000 GEL bail and he continues to serve as the President of the Wrestling Federation.
