Expert: "Golden com" won the right to manage TV tower not without purpose
According to the Georgian expert-economist Irakli Lekvinadze, company "Golden com" which won the auction, where the Tbilisi television tower was sold, was established precisely in order to get the right to manage the TV tower.
"Registration dates indicate that the company was created specifically to get the right to control the television tower. There were a lot of ambiguities around the tender. Many questions, needed to any investor to better understand the terms on which he can get control over the company, were unknown. Therefore, the rapid adoption of such a decision makes clear that the company was created specifically for this tender and this company would win the tender" - "Business-Georgia" quoted the words of Lekvinadze. According to him, the TV-tower has no alternative strategic object.
"This tower is such an object, which has no competitors. It has a high social value and it is quite important from a security standpoint. So, the alienation of such a facility, with the right to transfer management of any company which, moreover, has no experience in managing such an object, requires certain restrictions and regulations in order that the company will not offer companies, which use tower, such conditions that interfere with their functioning. And the chances for it are very high" - said the expert.
He added that the company has no competitors, respectively, there is no possibility to refuse to cooperate with this company.
