According to the lawyer of the former president, Mikheil Saakashvili, Beka Basilaia, if necessary, the prisoner and his advocates do not agree with the hospitalization of the convict at the 18th penitentiary institution medical facility.
Basilaia said Saakashvili's safety would not be ensured at the 18th medical facility of the penitentiary service.
"A few days ago, they said that the defense should point to any clinic in Tbilisi, and they would hospitalize Mikheil Saakashvili there. Yesterday we heard the announcement of the Minister of Justice that Mikheil Saakashvili will be hospitalized at the 18th facility.
This is a direct rejection of the practices that the prison administration and the penitentiary service have had for years. This is a direct indication that they are provoking and do not care about the security of Mikheil Saakashvili. Now they say that he should be transferred to the 18th facility in Gldani, where there are thousands of prisoners and convicts for various causes, and they want to stage provocative scenes," says Basilaia.
