The Regulatory Commission has created a history with which 9% owner has the opportunity to submit a suit - Kordzaia on Rustavi 2 case

"If the court decides to make a decision, according to which media will practically suspend its existence, it means that the freedom of expression is actually restricted," - says Tamar Kordzaia, the Political Secretary of the Republican Party regarding the new attack on Rustavi 2.

Nino Nizharadze, the owner of 9% shares of the company started a new court dispute. Nizharadze demands compensation of accumulated taxes.

Tamar Kordzaia says that the National Communications Commission made it possible that the 9% shareholder is able to appeal to the court. And if the court decides that the company has to pay 26 million , it means that the TV company will stop.

According to her, the Strasbourg Court considers such decisions as restriction of freedom of expression.
