2009-10-12 17:17

The New Rights opposition party issued a special statement over the episode of Georgian TV companies connected with representatives of the EU fact-finding commission and ex-Foreign Minister of Germany Frank Walter Steinmeier.


According to reportages of Georgian TV companies, one of the experts of the fact-finding commission allegedly was paid award by Gazprom [Russian company] for negative position in regard to Georgia; and Steinmeier allegedly found job in Gazprom.

The party mentioned the TV companies didn't broadcast the reply of German embassy to Georgia, demanding the disclaimer "The embassy of Germany strongly disclaims the speculative information spread by Georgian mass media and expresses hope Georgian journalists won't make such mistakes in the future," the party says.

According to the party's statement, the channels controlled by Saakashvili's government regularly distort and misinterpret facts, misinform the population and in this way violate human rights. They add that facts of distortion and misinterpretation of interviews and comments of ambassadors of France, the USA, the Czech republic and others has already taken place.

They remind about the Charter on Strategic partnership, signed between the USA and Georgia in January 2009 , implying obligation to provide mass media freedom and provision of population with objective information.

The New Rights demand the government to stop using TV channels for own propaganda and urge the management of channels to provide the population with objective information, free from influence of the authorities.
