Ukrainian Public Defender Lyudmyla Denisova is meeting Mikheil Saakashvili in Rustavi prison at the moment. According to her, she is interested in the health and legal status of the third president of Georgia.
The ombudsman also commented on the non-admission of a Ukrainian lawyer to Georgia and noted that she would address the relevant agencies on the issue.
"Today, we were given the opportunity to visit a citizen of Ukraine, Mikheil Saakashvili. I want to get information about his health condition because he has been on a hunger strike for 27 days. I wonder if it is possible to treat him at a local hospital. I want to talk to his personal doctor.
Doctors do tests every day, and the results of these tests are very interesting to me. It is necessary to support his life and find out which of his rights are being violated.
Another person came with me, a Ukrainian lawyer, who was not allowed to cross the border; he was sent back. We will definitely apply to the relevant authorities on this issue. After that, I will make a decision on how to act," the ombudsman said.
