PRESUMABLY ON POLITICAL GROUNDS
The non-official campaigning monitoring report published by ISFED mentioned
the fact of dismissal of Mindia Baramia, former Head of the Street Maintenance and Improvement Department at the Service Center of Poti Municipality due to his friendship with Poti deputy mayors who had joined Gakharia’s party. ISFED is representing the interests of Mindia Baramia.
Mindia Baramia`s father, Nugzar Baramia, says that Poti City Hall has not paid him 136,938 GEL for the work done. Under a simplified procurement agreement with Poti City Hall,
Baramia`s company was obliged to reconstruct the roof of a multi-story building located at N9 Chanturia Street. Nugzar Baramia states that in order to confirm the quality of the work done, he also received a conclusion from the Samkharauli Expertise Bureau, however, Poti City Hall has not yet accepted either the conclusion or the work done.
Nugzar Baramia explains the actions of Poti City Hall as politically motivated and says that his son was fired on political grounds and that his cooperation with Poti City Hall deteriorated following him supporting For Georgia party.
