    TBILISI, FEBRUARY 20, 2004, RIA NOVOSTI - Spokespeople for Ajarian President Aslan Abashidze have dismissed as false the media reports about a rampage in the headquarters of the party he leads, Democratic Ajaria. They told a correspondent of the Novosti Georgia news agency that no one had broken into the party's offices and that only the panes had been smashed.

    According to Abashidze's press service, stability in the capital of Batumi has now been restored. The police are keeping the situation under control, although thousands of protesters remain on the streets. Counter to media reports, no armed attacks have been made on Opposition leaders and their families today.

    It was Democratic Ajaria members who spread the information about the rampage in the party's headquarters.
