This week, six people were served with notices of suspicion and were subjected to measures of restraint on the form of a written undertaking not to leave their places of residence, the Prosecutor General's Office said in a press release.

Twenty-six persons, including two MPs, have been recognized as victims in the investigation.

Some 5,000 people gathered outside the parliament building on August 10 to protest against the government's plans to impose restrictions for those who refuse to get vaccinated or tested for COVID-19.

The rally turned violent in the evening, with some protested blocking exits from the parliament and throwing bottles and flares at police officers. The police used teargas against protesters.
