Mikheil Saakashvili's next trial is scheduled for November 29, at 11 am. The ex-president defense is dissatisfied with the decision. Lawyers say the judge is wasting time on political motives.
"Now they will mark the process within one week, within ten days, and wait for Mikheil Saakashvili to be critically aggravated. They are waiting for Mikheil Saakashvili to fall into a state where he can not move; they are waiting for a state when Mikheil Saakashvili will not be able to speak, and then they will start the process. We are ready, the escort service is ready, but Mikheil Saakashvili can not come. They are waiting for the situation when the street protests will be fewer, everything will change, and they too will become free," Basilaia said.
According to Basilaia, the judge will no longer consider the offer of Mikheil Saakashvili to appear in court remotely because even in such a case, it is possible for him to appear in public, which is not in the interest of the government.
