Abkhazia allowed broadcasting of Radio Liberty

2009-10-08 10:30

Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia, said that last week managers of Radio Liberty had sent an official letter to the Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia, in which proposed to open a representative office of the radio station in the region.


"I stated it must not be a Georgian project. I was persuaded the project was South Caucasian, and I gave my consent for opening the representative office", Shamba said in the interview to the Kommersant. He explained he campaigns for "expansion of the freedom of speech".

Previously Georgia Times reported that Kristian Bzhania, the head of the information and mass media department, announced that an attempt t broadcast illegally will be punished. "We'll take tough measures, including technical ones, up to the suppression of the radio signal. We have means. And then all this Georgian-Radio Liberty fraud will go to hell".

Georgi Kabisov, the head of the State Committee for Information, Connection and Mass Communications of South Ossetia, shares practically the same position. But Irina Gagloyeva, the acting Minister of Information of South Ossetia, in her interview to the Kommersant, said that the republic has the experience of cooperation with that radio station, and despite sometimes "carrying too far in regard to the opposite side, Radio Liberty was quite objective, covering our position as well".
