I’m really happy that finally a team of Polish doctors came to Georgia, and was allowed to see former President Mikheil Saakashvili, said EU Ambassador Pawel Herczynski.
He said that Saakashvili’s rights must be fully protected.
“It’s very good that they have spent several hours with the patient. I’m also very happy that they have talked to the VivaMedi doctors who are taking care of him. I sincerely hope that their expertise would help to treat the patient.
I want to express gratitude to the Georgian authorities. It took some time to make sure that all required procedures are met. Finally, when the team arrived very swiftly they were allowed to see the former president. So, I hope that their visit would help to make sure that he’s treated properly,” EU Ambassador said.
The Special Penitentiary Service on July 14 released a statement and video footage showing a Polish doctor “trying to sneak out the paper-wrapped sample taken from the jailed ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili in his shoes.”
