Ukrainian MFA urges Georgian authorities not to return Saakashvili to prison

World A- A A+

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has called on the Georgian authorities not to return former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who also has Ukrainian citizenship, back to prison from a military hospital where he is being rehabilitated after a hunger strike,  the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry informs. 

"Yesterday's attempts to transport Mikheil Saakashvili from a military hospital to a penitentiary facility were made incorrectly. The lawyers were not informed about the corresponding decision of the Georgian Penitentiary Service. His health condition does not allow him to do this. He needs further rehabilitation," the statement says.

The department called on the Georgian authorities "to treat the citizen of Ukraine with respect and not to allow actions that threaten his life and health."
