“The health condition of the former president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, is extremely serious,” his lawyer Shalva Khachapuridze stated today in a conversation with the correspondent of the Russian TASS agency.
According to the lawyer representing the interests of the former president, Saakashvili’s health condition can be improved only if treatment is organized abroad.
“Saakashvili’s face has turned black, it looks like the face of a person who died three or four days ago. According to my information, it is impossible to treat this type of disease in the territory of Georgia”, the lawyer stated.
Mikheil Saakashvili, who has been in prison since October 2021, was transferred to the civil “Vivamed” private hospital on May 12.
His lawyers and party members, however, demand to give the former president the opportunity to leave the country and undergo treatment in any of the foreign clinics.
