The state offers Mikheil Saakashvili to bring any doctor from any foreign clinic and involve him in the treatment process, said the Minister of Justice of Georgia.
“We express our readiness and offer convicted former president to bring any doctor from any foreign clinic, whom the state will give the opportunity to be involved in the former president’s treatment.
We also applied to the Levan Samkharauli National Forensics Bureau to evaluate his state of health, and the examination was scheduled. Recently, one of the lawyers spread information about the possible poisoning of Mikheil Saakashvili, to which we also had an immediate response.
We asked the Bureau to conduct a toxicological examination, which Saakashvili refused. Today, we often hear the demand to transfer him abroad for treatment.
We should remind everyone that the convicted prisoner is serving his sentence in the penitentiary institutions on the territory of Georgia, and the Ministry of Justice does not have the legal leverage to fulfil such a request.
Equality before the law is one of the main constitutional values, which applies equally to any person in this country, and no one can be an exception.
It is also well known to the public that the Empathy center conducts an independent examination, in which foreign experts are involved, and as you know, the state gave each of them the relevant permits after the complete presentation of the documentation”, - said Rati Bregadze.
