The third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, who is in prison in Rustavi, appeals to the United States government to impose sanctions on the clan of judges:
"I urge the US government to impose personal sanctions on the judges' clan immediately. This will strengthen the position of the judges who first voted against the pressure and for the independence of the judiciary. It will also give hope to the victims of an unjust system. I say this as a personal captive of Putin, who has not been allowed to appear in court for more than a month," the statement said.
The third President of Georgia was arrested on October 1.
Mikheil Saakashvili has been on a hunger strike for 36 days in prison
