Opposition leader said beaten in Zugdidi

Multiple sources report that Koba Davitashvili was beaten up in Zugdidi, where he is running for the district's majoritarian seat.

It wouldn't be the first time. On November 7, as riot police violently dispersed anti-government protests, Davitashvili was kidnapped from a bazroba and severely beaten by unknown men. There were no prosecutions in that case.

UPDATE: National Movement claims Davitashvili first beat a woman on the precinct commission in the village of Rukhi, who then beat him up. Their words, not ours.
