Mze TV Suspends News
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 26 Jun.'08 / 11:58

Mze TV station suspended news programs starting from June 26.

Mze TV, which is owned by the same media holding as Rustavi 2 TV, had news bulletins on the hour with main news programs twice in the evening.

Mze TV itself has made no announcement on the matter, but its sister station, Rustavi 2, said the channel's planned “reorganization” was the reason for the suspension. It is expected that Mze TV will now become a purely entertainment channel.

Rustavi 2 TV and Mze TV, according to documents submitted to the Georgian National Communication Commission, are owed by Georgian Industrial Group (GIG) and GeoMedia Group, a mysterious company whose ownership is obscure.

GIG owns a 45% share of both stations. Intelligence chief Gela Bezhuashvili’s brother, lawmaker Davit Bezhuashvili, is a founding member of the group.

The remaining shares in both Rustavi 2 TV and Mze TV are owned by GeoMedia Group. The only information available on the company is that it is registered in the Marshal Islands.
