Opposition calls to introduce censorship in mass media2011-01-04 14:01
Levan Gachechiladze, a co-chair of pro-opposition Georgian Party advances the initiative to introduce censorship in Georgian mass media, as News Georgia reports. The prohibitory law, the politician believes, will make mass media refrain from using unverified information and making unfounded accusations in particular.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The oppositionist's decision is connected with an article in a Georgian newspaper in which he as an opponent to government was accused of trying to make arrangements with Mikheil Saakashvili. As reported, he even set forth his demands required for fruitful cooperation.
"First: to appoint me as an interim prime minister for 6 months; second: to give me five million to establish an Ilia Chavchaladze bank and 10-12 million as initial capital", - is the quotation of the note Gachechiladze allegedly made up for Saakashvili that was published in Asaval Dasavali newspaper in "Selling people and the nation" article by journalist Jaba Khubua.
The article provoked a nasty scandal around Gachechiladze.
"When mud is thrown on a person without any arguments this is not politics or some kind of political game. It was really hard to bear it for me and my family, but that won't bring me down", - Gachechiladze stated.
This incident forced the oppositionist to call on mass media to introduce censorship. He plans to hold meetings with representatives of Georgian mass media and public to discuss the issue.
"This incident must serve as a lesson for everyone. We must agree on the necessity to abide by ethical and moral norms. It is inadmissible to let people say whatever comes to their mind", - the oppositionist said.
