" Christmas Epistle is used to limit freedom of speech" - Sergo Ratiani


" We see an attempt to politicize Patriarch"s epistle,"- says Sergo Ratiani, one of the leaders of European Georgia. he believes that accents, made by representatives of the government regarding the Christmas epistle of the Patriarch may become a reason for imposing restrictions on freedom of the media.

According to Sergo Ratiani, the ruling party tries to interpret the opinion expressed in the epistle in such way, which will cause the imposition of regulations on the freedom of speech.

"It is worrying when this Christmas epistle, which as usual envisages a call to mutual respect, is being used for political purposes in order to restrict freedom of speech, "says Sergo Ratiani.
