"Public Broadcaster" blocked TV ad of Kakha Kukava and Democratic movement (N3) from air
20-09-2017  

Prices of medicines in Georgian parmacies several times exceed the current prices in neighboring countries. The fight against pharmacy monopolies is one of the main priorities of the election bloc "Democratic Movement - Free Georgia".


Leaders of the block - Tbilisi mayoral candidate Kakha Kukava and Dimitri Lortkipanidze -candidate for City Council Chairman, have prepared an advertisement on this issue that deals with the most frequently consumed medicine in Georgia - "Captopril", sold by Georgian monopolist oligarchs for 4.5 lari, but its  prize in neighboring countries is only 0.5 GEL.


In spite of the obligations imposed on the broadcasters – to place  without any discrimination advertisements for all qualified subjects, the GPB and the Adjara TV prohibited the video clip of Kakha Kukava and Dimitri Lortkipanidze.


It is obvious that the decision is motivated politically, what is  clearly shown in absurd justification  of the broadcasters sent to the blocs as if the clip has commercial character and its goal is to support the realization of used product.


The election bloc has already appealed to the National Commission of Communications.
