"Kartu Groups" was fined
The company "Kartu Groups", which is owned by well-known Georgian businessman and politician Bidzina Ivanishvili, was fined in the amount of 4000 GEL. As reported by "Georgia-News", such verdict was rendered by Municipal Oversight Service of Tbilisi City Hall. According to experts of the supervisory authority, this fine was imposed for the restoration of the Palace of King Rostom in the city center carried out improperly.
"On the eve, members of the Oversight Service went to the Palace of King Rostom and demanded to stop work immediately and to leave the territory. This was caused by incorrectly performed work. Oversight Service fined "Kartu Groups" on 4000 GEL and ordered to correct the deficiencies within 20 calendar days, but staff of "Kartu Groups" still can not get into the building", said in a press secretariat of the businessman.
Restoration of the facade of the building was completed in August, and September 1, they appealed to the Tbilisi City Hall to pass this phase of the work, explained in a statement.
"Under the law, employees of Oversight Service were to take the object on October 13, but they came to the facility on October 26, and asked to stop the work", the press secretariat said further.
Also they have seized a land plot of 3000 square meters, which "Kartu Groups" acquired from the state for a period of 59 years in 2010 and planned to make an underground garage, claimed representatives of Ivanishvili.
"The company had a prior approval of the City Hall for the building an underground parking garage. Construction of the tunnel was completed on May 26, 2010, and they were to carry out facing works. Metropolitan Municipality has confiscated land of "Kartu Groups" without any warning, as well as the garage for a hundred cars", explain in the press secretariat.
