Georgia's ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili

Georgian government does not consider the option of extradition of ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili to Ukraine. The trial in his case will take place in Georgia. Deputy Prime Minister Tea Tsulukiani said so as cited by Imedi News.

"Speaking about the extradition of Saakashvili is legally a nonsense. If we're talking about handing Saakashvili over to Ukraine for the Georgian court to judge him there - we have no intention to do that. This makes no sense", Tsulukiani said.

She added that the verdicts announced by Georgian courts will be enacted in Georgia.
