Maestro TV Remains Off Air in Rustavi
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 2 Jun.'09 / 15:17

Tbilisi-based Maestro TV remains off air in the city of Rustavi despite earlier pledge by local cable television provider to resume its transmission on June 1, Maestro TV owner, Mamuka Glonti, said on Tuesday.

He told Civil.Ge that representatives from the local cable television provider company, Tori, were shunning away from contacts with him.

Maestro TV has claimed the authorities’ pressure on the local cable network behind the latter’s decision to stop airing Maestro TV. Local authorities in Rustavi have strongly denied the allegation and said it was a problem between two private companies and the authorities had nothing to do with that.
