Special group to monitor ex-president Saakashvili's health

A special group, staffed by Public Defender, physicians, parliamentary human rights committee Chair, will be set up to monitor the health of the former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, said the Chairman of the Parliamentary Health Committee Dimitri Khundadze on Wednesday.

The group will constantly monitor Mikheil Saakashvili’s health and legal state to inform the public of accurate information and avoid speculations, Khundadze noted.

Law enforcers arrested Mikheil Saakashvili in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on October 1. He kicked off a hunger striker day after detention.

The ex-president is charged with several criminal offences. In 2018, he was sentenced to six years in prison in absentia for abuse of power.
