Nino Burjanadze Sues Media
Nino Burjanadze Sues Media

Nino Burjanadze, leader of the opposition People's Assembly has sues Rustavi 2 and Imedi TV companies as well as The Tabula magazine at the court and the Journalists Charter of Ethics of Georgia.

Following the publication on the People's Assembly website the copies of the complaint have been sent out to international journalism organizations too. The policy maker's annoyance was due to the Rustavi 2 and Imedi TV report related to the policeman killed following the dispersal of the rally on the night of May 26.Reportedly the policeman was killed by Nino Burjanadze's escort car.

"TV companies aired false stories which included criminal indictments against me. That was the simulated Kronika 2. The Tabula magazine violated the presumption of innocence through publishing my photo on the cover page bearing an inscription To Be Judged." I wonder according to which article I am going to be tried by the spouse of Giga Bokeria, Secretary, National Security Council of Georgia while I have been posed no single question by the Ministry of Internal Affairs," said Burjanadze.

Giga Bokeria's spouse is Tamar Chergoleishvili, Editor-in-chief, The Tabula.

According to the publication on the People's Assembly website Burjanadze demands a compensation for moral and material damage inflicted by the aforementioned means of media. The requested sum will be transferred to the fund of the affected as a result of the May 26 rally dispersal.

Nino Burjanadze would like to show solidarity to all of the journalists whose work was hampered by law enforcers on May 26 and would like to express gratitude to the media workers having shown support to Aleko Chubinidze, head of People's Assembly press service currently being detained at Telavi isolator.
