Georgia, Tbilisi, March 16 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
British Ambassador to Georgia Denis Kif protests due to the information voiced during 'Report of the Week' March 13. He told media that the plot used by TV company Imedi, where I talk, has a completely different context. It does not concern the events described in the program. It causes great confusion, as well as the report, where the Georgian president and British Prime-Minister talk about non-existent events.
I want to clarify that neither I nor the British government have connection with the irresponsible broadcasting, which caused great concern among the population of Georgia. I believe that the plot used by the TV company is disrespect to me as British ambassador. This reflected badly on the reputation of Georgia in terms of media", Kif said.
According to him, he will be grateful if TV company "Imedi" as soon as possible publishes a rebuttal in the air that this plot did not correspond to the truth. I was not informed about it and it was used without my consent.
Georgia's national governing communications commission obliged Imedi to apologize on the air.
