Do you think Joseph Kay’s claims on Badri Patarkatsishvili’s property are fair or not?

Wednesday, September 24
“I don’t think Kay is the legal owner of Patarkatsishvili’s property. Why didn’t he give it to his family members, to his wife or children?”
Nana, accountant, 51

“I think his claims are fair. Patarkatsishvili and Kay were companions and perhaps he trusted him.”
Mari, student, 18

“I don’t think Kay has any right to Patarkatsishvili’s property. It was in the Government’s interest to give Imedi to someone who would obey them in everything. So they found Kay.”
Giorgi, archaeologist, 57

“I don’t know. It is the job of the court to decide. If Kay forged some documents they should press charges against him.”
Ana, housewife, 32

“I think it isn’t fair. He obviously forged the documents to get the money and property. The legacy of Patarkatsishvili, and his death, raise many questions.”
Rati, economist, 22

“If he is a close relative, probably he has the right to a share of Badri’s property, although it is a matter of whether Patarkatsishvili’s family members will want to share it with him.”
Gega, student, 23

“I don’t think that Kay has any right to Badri’s property. He will get nothing I am sure.”
Sopo, waitress, 23

“If Kay has strong evidence that they were companions in business and had common assets, he should be given a part of Patarkatsishvili’s property. It will be fair.”
Kakha, driver, 44

“First and foremost the court should check the validity of the documents. Only then could someone claim that Kay has any right over Patarkatsishvili’s property.”
