"Government is not planning the invasion in TV Pirveli; therefore, there is no reason to panic," Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Gharibashvili stated at the briefing.
According to Gharibashvili, such actions were characteristic of the previous government, and the "Georgian Dream" ended these processes with a victory in the 2012 elections.
"The information spread by TV Pirveli, as if the government is going to intrude, of course, is baseless. No invasion by the government is planned. We want to remind our opponents that it is 2021; this is not the year 2007 when there was a raid and an invasion of TV Imedi. We ended it all in 2012," Gharibashvili said.
The judge granted the motion of the prosecutor's office and gave permission to remove the materials from "TV Pirveli." The case concerns the secret audio recordings that aired on Nodar Meladze's "Shabati," March 6.
Yesterday, the General Prosecutor's Office of Georgia issued a special statement regarding TV Pirveli.
