Denisova: Saakashvili’s Condition is Serious, Faces Disabilities or Death

Public Defender of Ukraine Lyudmila Denisova calls on the Georgian authorities to provide appropriate treatment to the third President Mikheil Saakashvili and to observe the norms of international law.

As Denisova writes on Facebook, Saakashvili, a Ukrainian citizen and head of the Reform Council, is in critical condition and needs immediate treatment at a clinic abroad.

“This has been confirmed by Dr. Otar Toidze. Delaying Saakashvili’s treatment may lead to his disability, which may be fatal. He has repeatedly said that Saakashvili needs treatment in a multidisciplinary civil clinic or in a clinic abroad,” the Ukrainian ombudsman wrote.

The Council of Physicians created by the Ombudsman has prepared another report on Mikheil Saakashvili's health.

According to the member of the council, neurologist Tengiz Tsuladze, Mikheil Saakashvili has a protein hunger.

According to the doctor, Saakashvili consumes about 1/4 of his daily calories, and his body ‘is eating itself’.

On April 20, Mikheil Saakashvili became incapacitated at the trial and had to leave the courtroom.

Mikheil Saakashvili's mother, Giuli Alasania, demands the immediate removal of the third president from the country and his placement in a suitable clinic.
