Who owned Georgia (2003-2012) – New book by Transparency International

December 21, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Transparency International Georgia in collaboration with journalist Paul Rimple have published a book: Who Owned Georgia (2003-2012).
Written in the format of a novel it leads the reader through an interesting selection of short stories from the world of telecommunications to broadcasting, advertising, oil, pharmaceuticals and mining. These anecdotes describe the businessmen and the companies, past and current, who owned and controlled significant shares in important sectors of the Georgian economy and their ties with members of the former government.
The book evidences how national broadcasters in Georgia were owned, via a complicated web of companies registered offshore, by former members of the government and their relatives and that the Georgian National Communications Commission (GNCC), the sector regulator, gave preference to those shareholding companies by creating artificial barriers in the broadcasting and telecommunications market.
The fool version of the book can be access on the organization’s website.
