The Georgian authorities have been accused in pressure on the media again
Information Centre of Mtskheta-Mtianeti told about pressure from the local authorities. According to the "Georgia-News", the Center was founded with the support of "Open Society - Georgia".
"They contacted with two staff members on behalf of the administration of the municipality Dusheti and stated that in the event of continued cooperation with media organizations, their families will have serious trouble. Then one of the employees refused to cooperate with us" - said the Center in a statement.
Its employees are appealing to non-governmental organizations, to the Ombudsman's apparat and the relevant bodies to "respond to the facts of pressure".
Currently, the Center employs few people, and the news are published in the social networking site Facebook.
