I call on everyone to refrain from dragging the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB) into politics. We will not allow anyone to do that, Tinatin Berdzenishvili, GPB General Director, said during the assessment of an attack on the channel.
“It is unimaginable when they do not understand what a public broadcaster is and the attitude towards this broadcaster as an institution.
We understand very well our responsibility as well as our obligation to listen. I would like to remind everyone. We are protected by the Constitution and international organizations with which we will talk about media freedom, of course, including this fact.
In general, it is simple to talk about media freedom in this country. When we get to specific facts, we encounter resistance. Here I want to tell everyone that there are no blacklisted respondents on our channel. I call on everyone to refrain from dragging the Public Broadcaster into political ends. We will not allow anyone to do that,” Tinatin Berdzenishvili said.
One of the leaders of the European Georgia party Giga Bokeria falsely and unreasonably accused GPB of “harsh approaches” to his party representatives.
