Former defense minister Irakli Okruashvili has filed a lawsuit against Kibar Khalvashi, a new owner of 100% shares of "Rustavi 2". In his lawsuit, filed to the Tbilisi City Court by Okruashvili’s lawyer, Okruashvili claims that he is a legal owner of "Rustavi 2" and demands sequestration of the company shares that were registered by Kibar Khalvashi yesterday.
As lawyer Gia Zodelashvili told reporters today, the forensic examination has confirmed the authenticity of the signature of Irakli Okruashvili on the document, proving that Irakli Okruashvili is the owner of "Rustavi 2". According the lawyer, the document authenticates that the share of “Rustavi 2" was purchased by Irakli Okruashvili on behalf of Kibar Khalvashi, who confirms that Irakli Orkuashvili and not he has the property right on the TV company.
“This document confirms that Kibar Khalvashi was not authorized to implement any action in connection with Rustavi 2 and if he violated this provision, he was obliged to pay $ 7 million fine for Irakli Okruashvili. This condition has of course been violated because the actions of Kibar Khalvashi were not agreed with Irakli Okruashvili,” Okruashvili’s lawyer said.
