Ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili’s lawyer Nika Gvaramia visited his defendant at the N12 Rustavi prison.
Gvaramia said no violence was observed during the ex-president’s transfer from the Gori Military Hospital, though Mikheil Saakashvili was weak and in a wheelchair.
“The ex-president had high blood pressure. He was under the effect of sedative pills and, as he told me, had no power to resist,” Gvaramia said.
As the lawyer noted, the main objective now is to rescue Mikheil Saakashvili from the Georgian penitentiary system.
Ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili was transferred from the Gori Military Hospital to the N12 Rustavi Prison on December 30. Mikheil Saakashvili has been undergoing a post hunger strike recovery at the Gori Military Hospital since November 19. He was arrested on October 1 and jailed at the N12 Rustavi Prison.
