Executive Director of the Charter of Journalistic Ethics hopes that summoning the owner of the TV Pirveli for questioning will not affect the editorial policy of the channel. According to Nata Dzvelishvili, when there is political interest in a particular television station, the government is using all means to achieve its goal and the example is Rustavi 2 case. Nata Dzvelishvili hopes that after "Rustavi 2" it will not be"TV Pirveli" and it will continue independent broadcasting.
“I hope that this questioning is not in any way related to "TV Pirveli" and will not affect TV Pirveli in any way. I hope that after "Rustavi 2" there will be no "TV Pirveli" and this broadcaster will continue to work independently. The case of Rustavi 2 has shown us practically that when there is political interest, all means can be used to achieve that interest, ”Nata Dzvelishvili said.
