Droa leader Elene Khoshtaria has stopped the hunger strike following Justice Minister’s recent offer to transfer jailed ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili to the Gori Military Hospital for treatment.
Khoshtaria said she is waiting for a doctor for post-starvation rehabilitation. She started the hunger strike on November 3 demanding Saakashvili’s transfer to a civilian clinic.
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.
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.”
