Salome Samadashvili: I said at the meeting with Donald Tusk that the EU should begin consideration of sanctions against Ivanishvili

National Movement member Salome Samadashvili said that the main message of the opposition at the meeting with Donald Tusk was persecution of opposition representatives in the country by Bidzina Ivanishvili.

As she told journalists after the meeting, it is important if Donald Tusk personally imparts a message to Bidzina Ivanishvili about the possible consequences of persecution of the political opposition.

In addition, Salome Samadashvili said at the meeting that the EU should begin consideration of sanctions against Ivanishvili.

"One of the main issues we talked about is the huge threat facing democracy in our country. I mean Bidzina Ivanishvili’s announcement about political persecution against the opposition”, Samadashvili said.
