Rustavi 2 Accused for Hiding GEL 1,5 Millions in Profits

Malkhaz Salakaia, Deputy Head of Investigations Department of the Ministry of State Security states that the Ministry has a legal right to inspect financial documentation of Rustavi 2 broadcasting company.

Salakaia also states that the Ministry has a sanction of the Vake-Saburtalo District Court to inspect the company due to suspicion that the company has not paid 1,5 million Lari (approximately USD 750,000) in taxes.

Director General of Rustavi 2 Nika Tabatadze replies that these allegations are groundless, since the company did not have such incomes from advertising through the month and regards action of the State Security Ministry as a political pressure.
