They demand 1 lari from Bakradze for libel
A lawsuit over the head the Georgian Parliament David Bakradze can be instituted. As reported by "News of Georgia," the initiator of the suit appeared the deputy of faction "Unity for Justice" Dmitri Lortkipanidze. He intends to demand from Bakradze a moral compensation for libel. As expect, the lawsuit may be filed on Tuesday, October 4. This information was made public by Lortkipanidze today at a briefing with reporters. He explained that it is about Bakradze's statement at the plenary session of parliament on September 27.
That time Bakradze said that "extorting money from prisoners' families is an example of bad behavior on the part of the MP". This phrase was a comment on Lortkipanidze's statement.
"Bakradze did not call names, but most of society has decided that he was talking about me. After that, in the air of "Maestro" the Judiciary Committee Chairman Pavle Kublashvili explained that Bakradze spoke about me" - Lortkipanidze explained.
"I was compromised. If the Chairman had concrete documented information about such facts and he was silent, then it is a crime" - he further noted.
Lortkipanidze said that on Tuesday he planned to file a lawsuit to the Tbilisi City Court. The lawsuit will demand a compensation for moral damages in the amount of GEL 1.
