Droa leader starts hunger strike until Saakashvili transferred to civilian clinic

Droa party leader Elene Khoshtaria kicked off a hunger strike today until ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili is transferred to a civilian clinic.

She deems Saakashvili’s detention and developments linked to his health state as “sadistic and cynical revenge against a citizen of Georgia and the third president.”

Earlier Saakashvili’s lawyer Giorgi Gelkhauri said the ex-President’s health condition has weakened and worsened, but he is in good spirits.

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.
