"Nino Nizharadze had attempts to manipulate even before Kobar Khalvashi. Of course she could not manage it. Nino Nizharadze wanted to sell 4% out of her 9% shares. However, by the decision of the partners, the meeting was held and on this basis we asked for the opposite, to conduct a preferential procurement.However she refused." - said Tamta Muradashvili, the lawyer of Rustavi 2.
According to Rustavi 2"s lawyers, the suit of Nino Nizharadze is unclear and it is almost impossible to get specific information from it.
"Nino Nizharadze"s suit is vague and general, from which it is almost impossible to get the concrete information . We believe that her claims have been set up only in order to provide a theoretical chance to change the e management of the company. There is no other reason and prescriptions .
Supposedly Nino Nizharadze will demand a change of management, in particular, she will say that the management can not fulfill its obligations and thus damage sthe company, so it is necessary to appoint another person who will lead the company," said Dimitri Sadzaglishvili.
