Nika Gvaramiya invites dismissed "Rustavi-2" reporters to new TV Company

At present, the new "Mtavari Archi" TV Company forms its staff, and journalists and presenters of talk shows from the "Rustavi-2”TV Channel are invited to work for the new company, while their salaries will be maintained, reports Nika Gvaramiya, the former general director of the "Rustavi-2" TV Channel.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 21, all the journalists who worked for the "Courier" and "Postscript" news programmes left the "Rustavi-2" TV Channel.

Nika Gvaramiya himself was dismissed from the "Rustavi-2" TV Channel on July 18, after the court had pronounced the decision to transfer the assets of the TV Company to its former owner Kibar Khalvashi.

Nika Gvaramiya has announced that all the journalists who left the "Rustavi-2" TV Channel are invited to work for the new "Mtavari Archi" (Main Channel) TV Company.

The "Mtavari Archi" TV Company is already operating, and at present, it forms its staff, Nika Gvaramiya informed the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Meanwhile, Nika Gvaramiya has noted that it is planned to maintain in full the salaries for the journalists who will join the "Mtavari Archi" TV Company, since the company has got sponsors.

"No excuses that a person has no money, he or she needs to repay loans and feed minor children, will not be accepted: those who stay at the 'Rustavi-2' will become an accomplice of invaders," Nika Gvaramiya said.
