To note, the Prosecutor's Office has officially charged the founders of JSC TBC Bank in July, 2019. The two are accused of laundering a total sum of 16.7 million USD. The matter concerns to the banking operation, which took place in 2008. Avtandil Tsereteli, father of TV Pirveli’s holder, is also associated with the case.

In August this year, the court upheld the prosecution's motion to seize Mamuka Khazaradze and Badri Japaridze's bank accounts. The prosecution called the measure "the seizure of equivalents of criminal proceeds."

The pair paid the bail ordered on them by Tbilisi City Court, 700,000 GEL each.
