Investigation Started on Threatening Journalist

Gurjaani district department of the MIA started investigation on threatening journalist Gela Mtivlishvili.

Investigators have already questioned the journalist.

Today, director of the Tsnori Hospital “Janmrteloba Ltd” Gogi Nikvashvili threatened journalist Gela Mtivlishvili. “I will not forgive it, why do not leave me alone? I am looking for you and wherever I see you, I will kill you,” Nikvashvili threatened the journalist without introducing himself on the phone. The journalist managed to estimate his identity by the phone-number.

Mtivlishvili said it was not first fact of threatening from Nikvashvili’s side.

Several investigations have already started by the Kakheti regional prosecutor’s office against Nikvashvili. At different times, the family members of the patients, who died in the hospital, blamed him for leaving patients in difficult situation. Finally, the criminal investigation against the doctor started at Sighnaghi district prosecutor’s office yesterday. Doctors of the Tsnori Family Medical Center blame Nikvashvili for misappropriating medical apparatus and materials from the center that was funded by the EU. Although investigation has enough evidence against Nikvashvili, the prosecutor’s office has not punished him yet.

Gogi Nikvashvili is active member of the National Movement and he has close relationship with influential officials. He is head of a district election commission in Sighnaghi district.
