Commission for Communications pronounced a verdict to Imedi

2010-03-16 10:21

The Georgian National Commission for Communications obliged the Imedi company to apologize to people of the country, reported Kakha Kurashvili, the head of the legal department of the Commission - RIA Novosti.


"The Commission obliged the TV company to publish a declaration, in which it must admit the fact of a violation and apologize to the society for dramatization, which stirred unrest in society," Kurashvili said after an extraordinary meeting.

"Besides, it [the TV company] is obliged, in the framework of self-governance mechanism, to consider claims of every aggrieved, and after consideration to make a grounded decision and provide information on all the violation to the Commission," he said.

Imedi [Georgian TV channel] showed a reportage on alleged invasion of Russian troops and death of President Saakashvili. It stirred a panic all around Georgia. Yet it turned out to be an "innocent" attempt to "show" the scenario of possible events in case the "Georgian society won't be consolidated against the Russian plan." On the order of President Mikheil Saakashvili, his press secretary Manjgaladze arrived in the studio and calmed down the people, saying such a turn of events can't happen in Georgia at the present-day stage.

The French Foreign Ministry has already criticized the initiative of Imedi, called the reportage on alleged uprising of the opposition and Russia's military operation against Georgia strange and absolutely improper. Paris expects all the participants to be responsible for that.
