Deputy Head of Mission at British Embassy: Disappointed at 3.5 year prison sentence for Nika Gvaramia

Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Tbilisi, Clare Allbless, says she is “disappointed at 3.5 year prison sentence for Nika Gvaramia, General Director of Mtavari TV, especially in the context of Georgia’s significant decline in international press freedom rankings issued recently by Reporters Without Borders.”

In her Twitter post, Clare Allbless said, “the UK is a strong defender of media freedoms, which are essential for citizens to be able to exercise their democratic rights, on all sides of political debate. ”

The Court has sent Nika Gvaramia, Mtavari Arkhi TV founder, and former Director of Rustavi 2 TV to 3.6 years behind bars on charges of embezzlement, money laundering and abuse of office while being at Rustavi 2.
