Minister Accused in Corruption Sues Levan Berdzenishvili

Minister of Economy, Industry and Trade of Georgia Ivane Chkhartishviil filed suit against Levan Berdzenishvili, Director General of the National Library of the Parliament and founder of non-governmental organization “International Center for Civil Development”. Chkhartishvili accuses Berdzenishvili in slander and insulting his reputation.

Chkhartishvili stated, that Berdzenishvili’s slander was meant to serve the interests of certain political forces. However, it must be mentioned that when Mikhei Saakashvili accused Chkhartishvili in corruption during the Meeting of the Government on August 8, Minister of Economy did not appeal to the court.
