The state of health of ex-Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who has been on a hunger strike in Rustavi prison for a month, may deteriorate at any moment; he refuses to meet with the doctors of the council as Interfax reported citing personal doctor of the former Georgian president Nikoloz Kipshidze.
"Mikhail Saakashvili's condition may worsen at any minute. He has already lost 20 kilograms. He only takes medications that are not related to the hunger strike. In the last three days, he does not take tests and refuses to meet with the doctors of the council. We must be ready for any scenario," Kipshidze said.
As it was reported earlier, former president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili has reported that he arrived in his motherland for the first time since 2013 on October 1. However, that same evening Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili stated that Saakashvili was arrested and had already been taken to the penitentiary. There Saakashvili went on a hunger strike.
The Ministry of Justice of Georgia has proposed to the Ministry of Health to create a multifunctional group of doctors to assess the health of the ex-president's prisoner.
Later it became known that the consilium of Georgian doctors recommended to hospitalize the arrested.
The Ukrainian side has repeatedly stated its plans to return Saakashvili to Ukraine. At the same time, the Georgian authorities do not intend to extradite the detainee.
