2010-04-29 22:14

Former British Ambassador to Georgia Donald McLaren who headed the Media Freedom Support Foundation in Georgia established by the relatives of the late businessman Badri Patarkatsishvili assures that the new structure will not be involved in politics.


According to Rosbalt, McLaren has stated that the request of Patarkatsishvili's wife Inna Gudavadze to help her establish the foundation and become its leader is a great honor for him.

"The freedom of media was one of my basic priorities in the years of my work at the Embassy (the British Embassy in Georgia), - McLaren reported.

According to him, the foundation is not going to pursue any political purposes. "The aim of the foundation is quite simple and transparent: it is the support of the free, high-quality and objective journalism", - the former Ambassador explained.

"In Tbilisi, the foundation is going to have its own team. The team and the monitoring council of the foundation are being composed at the moment", - McLaren's statement goes.

"For us, the priority field is television, or, rather, its informational segment. We are also ready to consider the applications from other mass media", - the head of the new foundation underlined.
