US Ambassador dubs ex-president’s transfer to private clinic to be important step

Moving ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili to a private clinic where he could receive the medical care that he needs would be a very important and positive step, US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan said.

“At the core we are talking about the human being’s health condition. What is most important that Mr. Saakashvili receives the medical care that he needs. That should be the focus. Moving him to the private clinic where he can get the medical attention or at least an assessment of his condition is a very important and positive step,” she said.

According to Kelly Degnan, qualified medical personnel should impartially assess the ex-president’s health state.

“The next step further to be is the impartial assessment by qualified medical professionals that everyone has confidence in. So, the next course of action is to establish and determine the fundamental, we are talking about the health of a human being and making sure that Mr. Saakashvili or anyone in this situation, receives the care that he needs and that should be a matter of importance,” Ambassador Degnan said.

Georgian Minister of Justice Rati Bregadze, on May 10, offered ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili to transfer him to the Vivamedi Clinic. The jailed ex-president, Mikheil Saakashvili, agreed but set several preconditions that included access to his family members, private doctor, and lawyers.
