Ex-head of the National Bank of Georgia about “energy banditism” of Saakashvili2010-07-28 18:12
Nodar Javakhishvili, the ex-president of the National Bank of Georgia, called Mikheil Saakashvili's statements about Georgia's being the exporter of power energy, overt lies - Regnum.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Javakhishvili, what actually takes place is barter, but not export. The agreement with Turkey implies: in summer Georgia supplies energy; in winter - is supplied from the Turkish side.
"But barter isn't a cause to claim Georgia is a powerful exporter. What kind of exporter you are, if you sell energy abroad at price 5 tetri per kilowatt-hour, and to your domestic consumer sell it at 18 tetri per kilowatt-hour. Weird business," he noted sarcastically.
In his view, the aforesaid difference in prices "is one more conformation the country a bandit is in office".
