Chief Police Officers Repelled Journalist Ramishvili
Head of Kakheti regional police department Kakha Gigolashvili, his deputy Gocha Rostomashvili, Telavi district chief police officer Shota Bezhanishvili and chief security police officer of Kakheti region Ilia Zavrashvili did not allow journalist Shalva Ramishvili to video-record the Georgian President’s country estate in Kvareli.
The video-materials released by Maestro-TV in the evening of September 26 shows that chief police officers could not clarify the reason why the journalist did not have right to move along the Kvareli central motorway. Ramishvili tried to continue his way along the road but the chief police officers blocked his way.
Before that, Ramishvili and his companions alleged that Kvareli district police officer Temur Gurashvili seized video-cameras from them, kidnapped them and finally left them on the road three kilometers from the detention place. An hour later, the seized equipment was returned to them without recorded video-materials.
The journalist has filed complaint to the Kvareli police office regarding the fact though criminal investigation on the interference in the journalist’s professional activities has not been launched yet.
The ICK tried to interview the chief police officers though none of them replied to our phone-calls.
