Badri’s heritage won’t be divided equally
The family of the late tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili has waived property claims against the Georgian authorities. It was not done just verbally; a relative agreement with the Ministry of Justice has been signed. Hands were shaken in an almost solemn atmosphere. Indeed, why not rejoicing? A three-year war between the country’s authorities and the tycoon’s relatives is over and the authorities’ opponents have naturally lost it.
Kobalia taking up the bottle
An epic with bringing Georgian wines back to the Russian market goes on. After an economic embargo has been laid on Georgia, the official Tbilisi spent several years complaining to the world community about the Kremlin’s political motives but after Russia made up its mind to enter in WTO, Sakartvelo’s government sharply reversed, having grasped at the chance to trade on such favourable subject. It looks like the entire Cabinet decided to express their opinion on the matter. Even Minister of Economy Veronica Kobalia felt herself an important person in the government, commenting upon the meeting of the Fair Georgia party leader Kakha Kukava with chief sanitary officer of RF Gennadiy Onishchenko.
Georgia spiritually pressed by Armenia
To the country’s surprise Georgia comes up with a law on legal status of religious associations that was quickly discussed and adopted in parliament and then immediately signed by president Saakashvili. As a result the Georgian patriarchate had no time to collect itself. The new document has already provoked a series of protests and scandals with representatives of the Armenian Church unconditionally satisfied with the law. Expert Giya Huhashvili shares his opinion why this important issue was solved at a flash-like speed with GeorgiaTimes.2011-07-09 15:01
Statistics service feeds Georgia fables
Earlier this week Georgia’s statistics service (GruzStat) announced the unseen 4% drop in inflation rate in June as compared to May, i.e. 10% annualized. The National Bank immediately promised that by the end of the year inflation won’t go beyond 8%. This statement of the financial regulator puts in doubt competence of its employees that seem to see no difference between fundamental macroeconomic indexes and seasonal adjustments.
