"The investigation is being carried out by the State Inspector Service, which was launched a few weeks ago, and it was one of the big and resonant reforms of this government. This service is investigating such important matter for the first time. They should show that the investigation will be provided with the highest degree of credibility by the public," Tsulukiani said.
