15 Individual Entrepreneurs Fined in Lentekhi Region

According to Liparteliani, this material does not belong to individual entrepreneurs. They were just sawing and processing it.

“Part of the material belongs to neighbors, another part to friends, but they will not admit under the fear of fine. But the environmental service argues with us,” – states individual entrepreneur Ramaz Liparteliani.

addressed the Environmental Inspection for commentary. “The sawing equipment of individual entrepreneurs did not meet the standards of sawing established by the regulation; they had no documentation for obtained and processed material; they were resisting the inspection representatives. Thus, the case is filed against them according to these three articles,” – stated Environmental Inspection and added that the damage to the environment exceeds 100 000 GEL.

The sawing equipment and the material documentation were checked by the Environmental Inspection about a month ago. The criminal case has been filed against the entrepreneurs.
