Why was Philip Morris case found in the resolution of a US Congressman?!

American Congressman, Republican Steve Russel has accused the government of Georgia of creating unfair business environment, calling upon President Trump to cancel visas to Georgian Ministers, seize their bank accounts and refuse them entry to the United States.

The American Congressman urges the US President to apply to the most radical measures due to three specific cases – making focus on the case of Philip Morris tobacco maker and the proceedings that are underway in Georgia.

The media is aware of the controversial dispute between the Georgian Tobacco and Philip Morris, which was won by Philip Morris at the second instance court of Georgia. Therefore, this example makes it unintelligible whether for which case the congressman accuses Georgian government and what he deems as oppression of business and Philip Morris in particular.

Medianews has tried to clarify these details and learn the position of the company by interviewing the representatives of the Philip Morris in Georgia. Nona Mamulashvili of the company told the news agency that she was not aware of the resolution by the US congressman.

“Unfortunately, I cannot comment on this. What can I comment on? I have not read the resolution by Russel. I am in France and have no idea what is going in Georgia now. I can tell you nothing until I come back to Georgia and nobody from our office can comment on the issue. All of them are on vacations,” – Mamulashvili told Medianews.
