Georgian TV host who bad-mouthed Putin summoned for interrogation

The journalist is suspected of embezzlement of money from the Rustavi 2 TV company.

The Prosecutor General’s Office of Georgia summoned journalist Georgy Gabunia, who became famous for bad-mouthing Russian president Vladimir Putin, for questioning. After the incident, the host was fired from the Rustavi 2 TV company, and now is suspected of misappropriating its money and exceeding official powers, RIA Novosti reports.

The TV journalist should be interrogated on October 7. The interrogation of the former head of the information department of Rustavi 2, Nodar Meladze, is scheduled for October 5.

Gabunia made his scandalous speech on July 7, 2019. After that, the management of the television channel changed – Gabunia and CEO Nikolaz Gvaramiya were fired. In September, Gvaramia launched a new television channel, Mtavari Arkhi, where Gabunia hosts the Post Factum program.
