Protest continues until Saakashvili transferred to Gori Military Hospital, UNM's Melia says

United National Movement leader Nika Melia addressed supporters at today’s rally to continue protest until Mikheil Saakashvili is taken to the Gori Military Hospital and his life is not in danger.

Melia thanked the supporters for their “selfless fighting,” dubbing it “praiseworthy.”

Today, Justice Minister Rati Bregadze has offered jailed Mikheil Saakashvili a transfer to the Gori Military Hospital for treatment. He said the military hospital is well-equipped to treat Saakashvili, but the transfer requires his consent.

Following Bregadze’s offer, Droa leader Elene Khoshtaria stopped the hunger strike. She started the hunger strike on November 3 demanding Saakashvili’s transfer to a civilian clinic.

Saakashvili demands a meeting with his lawyer Nika Gvaramaia and Ukraine’s consul over his transfer to the military hospital, said United National Movement member Eka Kherkheulidze, adding that “the optimal decision will be made after the meeting.”
