The mother of the third president of Georgia, Giuli Alasania, told reporters after visiting Mikheil Saakashvili in the "Vivamed" clinic that in the current conditions former president is, it is impossible for him to recover and the death is inevitable. She also said that if Saakashvili is found guilty by court, they will not back down and are planning on appealing to Strasbourg.

According to her, the ex-president has not 'had any oxygen' for a year and 6 months.

"He had a fever of 38 in the last 24 hours, then they brought him down, gave him medicine, he kept telling me that he's very weak. What is surprising, if we leave aside the fact that he is poisoned and has heavy metals in his body, in addition, the person has not had oxygen for a year and 6 months, has not seen the sky and the sun.

I brought exactly the same thing that I bring every day. Today is a little different, and by the way, I don't think it's different in terms of calories, he just said himself that maybe bring me this tomorrow. Whatever he tells me, I always bring it. I heard that at such a time you should not force them, you should bring them what they want. He eats some part and it is difficult for him to take.

The previous process convinced me that under these conditions there is no need to talk about his survival, simply that death is guaranteed. I can't say anything more good about the doctors, I can say nothing more than thanks to the treating doctors who are in direct contact with the nurses, but there is a very inadequate attitude from above," said Alasania.

As Giuli Alasania said in a conversation with reporters, if the judge of the Tbilisi City Court, Giorgi Arevadze, issues a guilty verdict regarding the postponement of the sentence for Mikheil Saakashvili or the release from the sentence, in this case the family will continue the fight in the Strasbourg court.
