American Journalist Attacked in Georgia

On 20. February 2011, American investigative journalist Jeffrey Silverman was attacked for the fourth time in Tbilisi, Georgia. The independent TV station Maestro reported on the attack in their evening 9 o'clock news on 28. February.

In the Georgian voiceover Mr Silverman is quoted as saying the attack might have been related to his investigation into the Georgian government's role in the transit of Afghan heroin through Georgia.

The TV station tried all day to get a comment from the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs's press service, but they did not answer the journalists' calls.
