“” offer you the mentioned statement invariably:

 “In May 2012, investigation was opened into alleged feigned arrangement undertaken in violation of the regulations provided by the Law of Georgia on Political Unions (Article 1641 of the Criminal Code of Georgia).

According to the Law of Georgia on Political Unions, a member of a party can make annual payment of maximum 1200 GEL as a party membership fee; a citizen of Georgia can make annual donation of maximum 60,000.00 GEL to a party. The same law prohibits both donation and payment of membership fee on behalf of a third party.

In violation of the requirements of the Law on Political Unions, Georgian Dream coalition has designed illegal scheme of party financing. According to the scheme, money is given to dozens of individuals who then return the money to the coalition member parties.

The evidence obtained by the investigation creates sufficient ground to believe that Merab Kachakhidze, Executive Secretary of the Conservative Party, gave cash of 7000 GEL to the head of the party’s Mtatsminda District branch. The money was later distributed among pre-chose 6 individuals who returned the money back to the Conservative Party in the form of membership fees.

The investigation has sufficient evidence to believe that the similar scheme was used by another Georgian Dream coalition member Erovnuli Phorumi (National Forum). Namely, Teimuraz Sheklashvili, deputy head of the party’s Gldani branch and a party activist Tariel Kardava gave cash of 1750 GEL to another party activist. This money was returned back to Erovnuli Phorumi in the forms of donation.

Merab Kachakadze, Teimuraz Sheklashvili and Tariel Kardava are arrested and will be indicted in line with the requirements of the Criminal Procedure Code of Georgia. The investigation continues,” – is said in the statement.
