Imedi chronics: a trial over the madmen2010-03-19 17:16
The authors of the TV piece about the attack that caused panic throughout the country should be put either to prison, or to an asylum. The Georgian opposition assumed the role of claimants and is preparing a petition to the court addressing Director General of the Imedi company Georgiy Arveladze, as well as President of the country Mikhail Saakashvili.
After the joke with Russia's attack and the murder of the Georgian head played by the Imedi TV channel everyone expected that the heads of the responsible persons would come off immediately, or, at least, the people would lose their posts.
However, things went on differently. The national commission for communications has just instructed the journalists to apologize before the audience during the prime time when the scandalous "modeled" newsreel was aired. The Imedi TV company must specify on air which items have been violated. There could have been a more severe decision. What happened is much more dangerous for Georgia's nationality", - commission member Irakliy Moseshvili has stated.
That is the whole thing. Head of the TV company Georgiy Arveladze is going neither to resign, nor dismiss any of his subordinates.
President Mikhail Saakashvili pretended to be angry with the broadcast as well. He says that the program was prepared with the violation of the journalistic ethics standards.
At the same time, the "resurrected" head of the state underlined that the events are close to reality. Considering the scale of "modeling" and the fact that Imedi is not at all a totally independent TV channel, the opposition treats him almost as the author of the idea of the pseudo-attack that made the entire Georgian nation shiver for half an hour on Saturday evening.
One of these days, several political parties have consolidated into National Council in order to take a joint decision as to what to do next with the government which allows such experiments on the people. It has been suggested already that early presidential elections should be held; however, that is not the issue to be settled immediately.
In the nearest future, the oppositional parties are going to file lawsuits against Georgiy Arveladze and Mikhail Saakashvili. The lawsuits will be based upon various grounds.
