Was there a political motive? – why the head was fired "Gruzpatent"

Mindia Davitadze was appointed chairman of the National Center for Intellectual Property of Georgia by ex-Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia and was considered his cadre

TBILISI, 11 Jun – Sputnik. By the order of the Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, Chairman of the National Center for Intellectual Property of Georgia “Sakpatenti” (“Gruzpatent”) Mindia Davitadze was dismissed from his job.

Davitadze headed Gruzpatent since February 2020.

“Unfortunately, due to the release for political reasons, we were unable to realize our plans,” Davitadze wrote on his Facebook page.

Davitadze believes that the reason for his politically motivated dismissal is that he was appointed to this position by former Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia.

Davitadze received the order of his dismissal by e-mail the day before, while on a business trip.

The former chairman of Gruzpatent wrote on his Facebook page how he tried in vain for three months to meet with the new Prime Minister and the head of the government administration to personally talk about the challenges faced by the National Center for Intellectual Property, as well as to discuss current work issues and future rather ambitious plans.

All of his requests for an audience were rejected for employment reasons, while the government administration held intensive meetings with the heads of other reporting departments.

According to Davitadze, in order to artificially create grounds for his dismissal, by direct decree of Prime Minister Garibashvili and the government administration, the Labor Inspection Service conducted an inspection in his department under the pretext of violating the labor rights of one of the employees.

On May 13, 2021, the Inspectorate, in record time, requested a large amount of information concerning the employees of Gruzpatent, and in just three working days issued a protocol of labor rights violations.

According to Davitadze, the unjustified decision of the Labor Inspectorate was appealed in court.

Later, he still managed to meet with the head of the government administration, Ilya Darchiashvili, who demanded that he write a letter of resignation, due to the fact that Davitadze was appointed the previous prime minister of Gakharia.

“I didn’t hear any other reasons, including legal arguments. Of course, I didn’t write a statement, since Gruzpatent is an independent state agency. However, as you can see, my refusal did not prevent me from being illegally dismissed as Prime Minister, about which I I found out quite by accident, “writes Davitadze.

He intends to continue to fight for his rights by legal means.

“The persecution of government officials for political reasons must stop!” – he concluded.

Meanwhile, the release of his former boss was commented on by Irakli Kasradze, who claims that Davitadze violated his labor rights.

“Justice has triumphed, my struggle has brought results. As a result of interference from various institutions, the chairman of Gruzpatent has been dismissed,” Kasradze wrote on his Facebook page.

According to Kasradze, the fight is not over yet, and there are still two trials and an investigation in his case ahead.

Giorgi Gakharia resigned as prime minister and resigned from the ruling party in February this year.

Gakharia founded the party “For Georgia” and criticized the “Georgian Dream”, accusing it of caring about their own interests more than those of the state. In response, the ruling party and its founder, Bidzina Ivanishvili, accused Gakharia of “high treason.”
