Attendance of Mikheil Saakashvili in the courtroom is associated with certain risks - Special Penitentiary Service

The attendance of convict Mikheil Saakashvili in the courtroom is associated with certain risks. Such a statement was released by the Special Penitentiary Service of Georgia.

“In order to prevent Mikheil Saakashvili from entering the penitentiary, it was planned to block the access roads to the penitentiary facility with vehicles owned by a number of political parties. They intended to carry out these destructive actions, in which about 500 - 600 vehicles would take part, which would cause uncontrollable situation and chaos.

Such actions may also occur in case of his transfer to the courtroom.

According to the information requested by the Special Penitentiary Service from the State Security Service of Georgia, the attendance of convict in the courtroom is associated with certain risks.

At this stage Mikheil Saakashvili refuses substantial part of his treatment and thus transfer to the court poses an additional risk to his health.

In case of a relevant decision, the Special Penitentiary Service will provide Saakashvili’s remote participation in the trial, as well as the possibility of holding the court session in the medical facility No 18”, - reads the statement.
