Teachers problem in Pankisi: by Ramzan Margoshvili

In Pankisi Gorge the teachers have a problem with the government. During whole of last year, after Pankisi George became a registered mountainous region, teachers received their salaries without tax paying. These were the teachers, who had three children under 18. But it was a mistake. They could receive salaries without tax paying beyond 3000 GEL. The government didn’t notice this mistake.

Now, they have to pay the amount of money over 3000 GEL back to the government. The teachers are protesting. They asked the government to not have to pay the money back.

My mother is also a teacher, she had also to pay the money back because my brother is a student. They said that she hasn’t to pay now.

She was very happy to hear this.
