The Georgian Public Defender, Levan Ioseliani, provided an update on the health monitoring of Georgia’s jailed ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili at the Human Rights Protection Committee.
According to Ioselian, a doctor-composed council established by the previous Public Defender regularly monitors Saakashvili’s condition. The most recent visit occurred in August, and according to Ioselian, their report did not indicate any critical or life-threatening situation.
The Public Defender emphasized that if there were any significant developments in Saakashvili’s health, the Council would communicate them. He mentioned that after August, deputies from the Public Defender’s office visited Saakashvili multiple times, maintaining open communication.
“When Saakashvili deems it necessary, our representatives and the Council enter. At the same time, we periodically request all documents related to his health from Vivamedi and send them to the Council for evaluation,” he said.
