OSCE Media Chief Welcomes Imedi Reopening

Miklos Haraszti, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, has welcomed the Georgian authorities? decision to allow Imedi back on air.

?I am encouraged by this demonstration of political will on the part of the country’s leadership to restore media diversity and contribute to a fair campaign for the presidential elections that will take place on 5 January,? Haraszti said on December 7.  ?I hope that no further restrictions will follow in the future, and that Imedi TV will be able to maintain its independent editorial line.?

Haraszti visited Georgia last month to help mediate in resolving the issue. After talks with the Georgian leadership, Haraszti said on November 23 that he hoped Imedi would be back on air by early December.
