Mikheil Saakashvili's health has taken a serious blow due to the long-lasting hunger strike. His lawyer Nika Gvaramia claimed that the former president of Georgia suffers from memory loss and troubled speaking.

"He (Saakashvili, - 112 International) cannot remember people's names. He still remembers mine, but during our conversation, it appeared that he cannot remember the names of his friends. I don't know what kind of a symptom it is, I guess, the doctors should talk about it", the lawyer said as cited by Interfax-Ukraine.

Gvaramia demands that his client be transferred to a civil hospital.

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.

Soon, ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili was transferred to the individual cell. Saakashvili refused to interrupt his hunger strike despite the worsening of health.

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.
