Public official Vasil Khakhulashvili failed to declare his real estate and business

15 March, 2024

In his 2024 asset declaration, Vasil Khakhulashvili, the chairman of the Marneuli Municipality Council Commission, failed to disclose his entrepreneurial activities and fully disclose his real estate.

Violation I: Khakhulashvili owns business shares in four companies, none of which are reflected in the declaration. It is noteworthy that he did not mention entrepreneurial activities in the 2022 and 2023 declarations either.

  1. I Gas LLC - 25%
  2. I Gas+ LLC - 50%
  3. LLC Gas 555 - 49%
  4. LLC Gas 555+ - 49%

Violation II: Vasil Khakhulashvili did not transfer the business shares under his ownership to a third party, which is a direct violation of the law on the fight against corruption.

Violation III: Vasil Khakhulashvili did not fully disclose his real estate. In particular, he did not disclose the 1.400 and 1.460 sq.m. plots of land owned by him in the city of Marneuli.

It is also noteworthy that in 2016, Khakhulashvili and his business partner, Giorgi Koiava, each donated 20,000 GEL to the party Georgian Dream - Democratic Georgia.

According to the law of Georgia on fight against corruption, Vasil Khakhulashvili, as a chairman of the Marneuli Municipality Council Commission, is obliged to disclose full information in his asset declaration.

Transparency International Georgia calls on the Anti-Corruption Bureau to study the violations revealed in the asset declaration of Vasil Khakhulashvili and respond appropriately in accordance with Georgian law.
