TV channel PIK appeals to Georgian parliament and U.S. ambassador

2012-10-23 12:09

Georgian Russian-language TV channel PIK (First Informational Caucasian), functioning under the order of the Georgian Public Television, appealed for the help to the newly-elected parliament of Georgia, its chairman David Usupashvili, as well as to the U.S. ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland, the IA Regnum reported.


The authors of the appeal call the PIK "unique Media project in the history of the Caucasus" and stress that the primary audience of the channel are ethnic minorities living in Georgia, population of the Caucasus and former Soviet republics, as well as Russian-speaking immigrants in the West.

The channel staff explains the U.S. Ambassador Richard Norland that the PIK is very significant for Georgia and for the entire region. "We appeal to you to support the fundamental principles of democracy - freedom of speech and expression. We, the journalists, have to ask questions, even if they are "inconvenient". If journalists' questions can cause the closure of TV channel, we can talk about censorship", said in the appeal of the channel staff.

As recalled by the Interfax, on Saturday Georgian Russian-language TV channel PIK suspended the broadcasting in Georgia. Catherine Kotrikadze, the head of information service, told the journalists this was associated with the rupture of the contract between the Georgian Public Television and the channel PIK.
