I do not recognize the Prosecutor’s Office and the Georgian judiciary, I am not here to be part of a pre-written comedy - Mikheil Saakashvili

I do not recognize the Prosecutor’s Office and the Georgian judiciary, I am not here to be part of a pre-written comedy. Such a statement made today Mikheil Saakashvili at his trial.

The judges appealed to the former president that the accused has the right to drink water, to which Mikheil Saakashvili replied:

“I appreciate your kindness”.

At the beginning of the trial, the attendees played the Georgian national anthem, which was followed by a reprimand by judges.

“Prohibition of the anthem? Under the anthem of Georgia, I, who composed this anthem, do not want to argue now”, - commented Mikheil Saakashvili.

Former president of Georgia attends his trial heard by a panel of 3 judges at the Tbilisi City Court. His supporters are rallying in front of the court building amid tightened security measures.
