If the society had not reacted and public defender had not done his utmost, we would not be working now,” said Ramaz Samkiharadze, director of the Radio Hereti.

On December 11 2007 Communication Commission initially granted the license to the broadcasting company “Hereti and then imposed it with a stiff fine of 5 000 GEL.
