The banker Mamuka Khazaradze
who launched a new political party spoke
about the details of his relationship with the head of the ruling party,
billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili.
Khazaradze notes he promised not to divulge details of the case, and did not intend to break his word, but Ivanishvili was the first to publicly spoke about this episode and he considers himself free from moral obligations, and can openly talk about what happened.
“Vano Chkhartishvili filed a lawsuit against me demanding $ 30 million. He simultaneously filed several claims, all of them were resolved by one judge in his favor. We made a counter- lawsuit to the constitutional court, as it demanded the seizure of property after the court of first instance and left us no opportunity to protect our interests, ”he says.
Mamuka Khazaradze talked about the phone conversation with Bidzina Ivanishvili which lasted almost an hour, and the informal head of the country advised him to refuse a retaliatory claim and try to agree.
Khazaradze adds that he came out of that meeting shocked, as he saw that Bidzina Ivanishvili was a mini-state that resolved the conflict between businessmen.
