What Was the Price for a Position in Shida Kartli Governor's Board?
The famous case of Nino Avetisova, the former personal assistant of the governors, Mikheil Kareli and Irakli Okruashvili, will soon conclude in the Gori District Court. The Shida Kartli Prosecutor's Office detained Avetisova in spring, 2006. Gori residents had brought suit against her then. They complained that Nino Avetisova had extorted some money from them. The accused promised to find jobs for them with the help of Okruashvili and Kareli.
Governor’s Fund is Spotty

The Poor Blame Social Welfare Agents for Incompetence and Corruption
Since last year, the State Agency for Social Aid and Employment has released a definition of families below the poverty level. The first registration of those in need of aid has now finished, with 40,001 so called ‘points’ estimated as the poverty limit. Impoverished people who have exceeded this limit, now find themselves unable to receive aid and blame social agents for incompetence and corruption.
