Public Defender, medical expert team halt visiting Mikheil Saakashvili following no significant changes in treatment

Public Defender Nino Lomjaria and the team of medical experts on Wednesday presented the final report regarding jailed ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili’s health condition.

Lomjaria said her team visited Saakashvili three times after he ended the hunger strike. She said the team would no longer visit the ex-President as “these three visits (on November 23, December 12, January 11) revealed no significant changes in treatment methodology.”

“The patient is undergoing medical treatment, however, our recommendations issued in November for psychological and physical rehabilitation, are still unfulfilled,” she stressed.

Neurologist Tengiz Tsuladze added that “Saakashvili needs psychological and physical rehabilitation, which is less realistic in prison, but it should not be impossible.”

Public Defender of Georgia set up a group of nine experts in November 2021.
