The former governor of Odesa region, leader of the ‘New Forces Movement’ party Mikheil Saakashvili does not plan to show up at the main office of the SBU, Ukraine’s state security service – in spite of the fact that he was summoned for an interview. Maryana Pochtar, the party’s press secretary said that as quoted by Ukrainska Pravda outlet.
‘Saakashvili did not get or sign any relevant documents – neither he nor his lawyers; they did not even hand him the notice of suspicion,’ she said, adding that the politician is about to hold a briefing near the Parliament’s building – to clear up the air in the situation.
Previously, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko urged Saakashvili to appear at the SBU office for the interview on Wednesday morning.
The scandalous Georgian politician faces charges with aiding a criminal group; he's on the wanted list now.
