The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has rejected a motion by former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili to transfer him to a private clinic. Minister of Justice of the Republic of Georgia Rati Bregadze stated that on his Facebook page.

"The Government of Georgia was notified by a letter to the Strasbourg Court of November 10, 2021, that on the same date Mikheil Saakashvili's representatives had appealed to the European Court of Human Rights to immediately transfer him from Medical Facility №18 to a multi-profile civil clinic. The Strasbourg court did not grant the applicant's request," Bregadze emphasized.

According to him, the ECHR called on the applicant to end his hunger strike. The Government of Georgia must provide the European Court of Human Rights with information on the applicant's health and safety by 24 November 2021.

As it was reported earlier, imprisoned ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili was transferred from the 12th correctional institution to the medical institution for the accused and convicts #18 on the 39th day of his hunger strike.

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.

At the same time, on November 7, the Georgian Penitentiary Service announced that Mikheil Saakashvili's state of health is stable and he is under constant supervision of the medical staff. And on November 6, the department released a video in which, according to it, Saakashvili allegedly eats baby puree.

In response, the ex-president said that he was going to "starve to death"ifor the sake of "freedom of Georgia."
