Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University has proved unable to justify its 1.5 million expenses, which involves 24,000 GEL paid by Lado Papava for his own books, university refurbishment works and medical research grants.
According to the scandalous opinion by the State Audit Office, out of the University expenses, 24 thousand GEL was paid by the former Rector for his own books. As the opinion reads, Papava transferred this amount of money to his personal account and purchased books which were not required for the University. The body was informed, the books were bought either as gifts to the library or just to be displayed there.
The University has disagreed with the scandalous report by the State Audit Office and declared that the opinion by the State Audit Office is just a wrong interpretation of information with which it was provided.
The opinion by the State Audit Office has already been forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office, and the Rector may even be summoned for questioning. Mr. Papava has not yet made any comment on this issue.
