Journalist at newspaper Georgia Today violated Charter's principles
The disputed material was Op-ed entitled “Feminism, Gayism, Drugism & All That Jazz” published by the English language newspaper “Georgia Today”. The Council concluded that the article contained inaccurate information with the purpose to spread phobias in the society and exacerbate the negative attitude of the public towards homosexuals and feminists. Although the applicant appealed to the editorial office to correct the material, the media outlet failed to publish an alternative opinion. Consequently, the Council found the violation of the First (accuracy), Seventh (Discrimination) and Fifth (correction) principles.

Only the applicant was present at the hearing of the case. The respondent journalist neither attended the meeting nor submitted a counterclaim.
