Opposition: Georgian authorities are buying up the newspaper because of the criticism
In western Georgia, representatives of local authorities and police are buying up newspaper circulation, so that the population has not read criticism of the ruling elite, said the deputy from the opposition party "Free Democrats" George Tsagareishvili, VZGLIAD reported.
"Hunt" for the newspaper from Tbilisi, such as "Resonansi", "Palitra Nedeli", "Vse Novosti" and others - is being led in the areas of Khonu and Wani, the oppositionist said. "It is particularly active when the newspaper cover events important for the country", he said.
"The more close the October parliamentary elections are, the more refined and acute the fight of the ruling "United National Movement" against freedom of speech becomes", Giorgi Tsagareishvili said.
Note that unlike the national television channels, Georgian newspapers are considered objective.
