Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said that he was not against the provision of medical assistance to him during his hunger strike in prison, said his lawyer Dmitry Sadzaglishvili, TV Pirveli reports citing sources.
The day before, a group of doctors visited Saakashvili and recommended that he be hospitalized for further observation in a clinic.
The source notes that the staff of the VivaMedi medical institution will prepare one of the floors for Saakashvili, where he will be under heavy guard.
The clinic itself has not yet confirmed information about Saakashvili’s possible hospitalization. As the director of VivaMedi Zurab Chkhaidze said, the floors in the clinic are often vacated due to the pandemic.
Mikhail Saakashvili was detained on October 1 on the eve of regional elections. Previously, 13 criminal cases were initiated against him, in some of which he was convicted in absentia. Once in the prison of the city of Rustavi, the ex-head of the country went on a hunger strike.
