My today meeting with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili has caused much interest in mass media.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. President, who immediately reacted to my statement and met with us. We have updated him on all legal aspects of the case. We asked him to watchdog the trial, because the United National Movement (UNM) is staging unprecedented pressure on the court and there are attempts that the UNM’s impudent conduct affect the court decision. We asked the President that his representative attend the trial in order to receive genuine and unbiased information around the case.
We held a long and interesting conversation and I reaffirm my gratitude to Giorgi Margvelashvili.
Meanwhile, after today’s meeting, almost all TV companies have invited me to a live program. I would like to thank media agencies for such interest, but I should bring my apologies because, I do not find it necessary to unveil the case details in TV programs.
Only acceptable case for me is to participate in TV debates with Misha Saakashvili if any TV company, including Rustavi 2m manages and organizes such a format. I think this format will be interesting to everybody.
I assure you my debates with Saakashvili will put an end to this case in several minutes and the society will see who are who, as well as all relations around Rustavi 2 TV company will be clarified.
Our society knows that several days ago I called on nominal owners of Rustavi 2 TV company brothers Karamanashvilis to take part in TV debates. I also made the same offer to Misha Saakashvili. As expected, they have ignored my offer. I think everything is clear. As to Mr. Gvaramia, the so-called director hired by the nominal owners, naturally, it is useless to talk with him about something.
