2010-04-29 20:40

The family of the late tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili is going to establish the Mass Media Freedom Support Foundation. The structure is going to be headed by former British Ambassador to Georgia Donald McLaren.


According to Rosbalt, today the tycoon's relatives disseminated a statement saying that the Imedi independent company (established by Badri Patarkatsishvili) that used to enjoy the people's respect and trust exists no longer.

The family of the late businessman believes that "it is only the devaluated name" that is left of the former Imedi. The report says that when Badri Patarkatsishvili owned the TV channel it was "the lighthouse of freedom" demonstrating the new standards of free, high-quality information and analysis.

"Badri's family continues their fair struggle for bringing Imedi back; however, unfortunately, the process turned out to be longer than it had been expected. So far, we consider our own contribution to the development of free and democratic media in Georgia to be very important. That is why we decided to establish the Mass Media Freedom Support Foundation", - the late businessman's family informs.
