Tbilisi City Hall VS Irakli Kakabadze

Tbilisi City Hall brought suit to the court against writer Irakli Kakabadze. The City Hall requests Kakabadze to pay 2 000 GEL for the reimbursement of the damage.

The City Hall claims that in August of 2010, Irakli Kakabadze and two more participants of the protest rally – poets Aleko Chighvinadze and Shota Dighmelashvili damaged the banner of George Bush and airport in Bush Street.

Attorney of Irakli Kakabadze Lika Tsiklauri stated that the City Call provided the agreements which prove that both banners were changed and it cost about 2 000 GEL.

Tsiklauri said that participants of the protest rally did not damage the banner which indicates direction to the Tbilisi Airport. They confessed they had damaged George Bush’s banner but it was their right to freedom of expression and think they should not be punished for it.

In August of 2010 Irakli Kakabadze and his friends held demonstration in Bush Street and requested to rename the street and painted mustaches on Bush’s banner.

During the demonstration, Kakabadze, Chighvinadze and Dighmelashvili were detained for the resistance to the police and were fined with 400 GEL according to the administrative law.

As for the argument with the City Hall, it was initiated by the City Hall. The latter appealed to the Tbilisi City Hall and requested reimbursement of the damage. Today, at 1:00 pm the Tbilisi City Court will start preparatory hearing on the suit of the City Hall.

Irakli Kakabadze will not be able to attend the hearing because he is in the USA.
