Microfinance Organization Attacker Demands that Lawmakers Pass 3 Laws

A video address from the individual that attacked a microfinance organization located on Tsereteli Avenue in Tbilisi has been spread via social media. The video was taken by one of the hostages. The footage shows that the attacker is likely drunk.

The young man is demanding that lawmakers enter Parliament and pass three laws:

"All MPs should gather and pass three laws. 1) Ban gambling throughout Georgia, 2) Give banks the right to issue loans with a 7% interest rate, 3) Allow pharmaceutical companies to receive only 10% profit," said the attacker.

Based on the available information, the attacker took 9 hostages.

The video footage shows that the attacker is not aggressive towards the hostages and he is not trying to intimidate them.
