2011-04-13 19:02

One of the student teams of the Georgian Club of the Cheerful and Sharp-witted (KVN), as well as members of the "cheerful" jury are accused of the propaganda of fascism and anti-Semitic attitude. As was reported by Novosti Georgia, the accusation came from the Georgian non-government organization called Center of Human Rights. 


The point at issue is a KVN game broadcasted on April 2 by Imedi TV channel. In this program, when asked about Hitler's best quality, the team of Tbilisi Medical University "Koza Nostra" responded: "Free gas in each Jew's family".

"In this part of the performance, the jury assigned the highest score to the team... The team's answer is not humoristic and there is nothing witty in it. It's not even dark humor. This is a pro-fascist and anti-Semitic statement. This is fascism that is definitely criticized in a healthy civil society", - goes the press-release of the human rights organization.

Center of Human Rights underlines that the jury included famous show-businessmen, TV hosts, actors, as well as Minister of Sports and Youth Vladimir Vardzelashvili. Jury members must apologize and the minister must hand in resignation, human right defenders believe.

"We are calling on jury members, whoever they are, to remember that they are public persons and must apologize, before the Jews first of all", - NGO says. Also, human right defenders demand explanations from Imedi TV company.
