Alia Holding

Alia Holding LLC was established in 1966 and includes the newspapers Alia and Kviris Kronika. Alia is published four times a week whilst Kviris Kronika is a weekly edition.

The owner of 100 percent of shares in the holding is Giorgi Bregvadze.

The newspapers pursue a xenophobic and homophobic editorial policy and fuel anti-Western attitudes.

The fifth cycle report of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), based on the research of MDF, gives examples of hate speech from the newspaper and gives recommendation to the government to revise its contracts with the media outlets that have been engaged in carrying out racist or homo/ transphobic hate speech.

In 2013-2014, the Holding received around 50 000 GEL from the budget through contracts with state entities; a corresponding indicator in 2015 stood at 21 816 GEL.

In 2016, in two member newspapers of Alia Holding, 23 hate speech comments were made by the authors and from them, 19 were homophobic.
