All this gives rise to doubt that the company has been bankrupted for years deliberately, – Director General of Rustavi 2 company Paata Salia made this statement at a briefing today.
As Paata Salia noted, since 2015, the costs of the company had been significantly increased, while the incomes had been decreased.
“The costs of the company had been significantly increased, while the incomes had been decreased, although, despite the loss the company management received hundreds of thousands as bonuses. For example, I see indebtedness to specific legal entities in exchange for certain services and no one can tell me what this service is and where there are studies for which 600,000 GEL has been paid. All this gives rise to doubt that the company has been bankrupted for years deliberately.
We will certainly appeal to the Court, requesting compensation for the damages inflicted to the company for years by the former director general”, – Paata Salia said.
Kibar Khalvashi the owner of 100% of the Rustavi 2 TV Company released the statement today, according to which he plans to sell the TV company.
