Aleksandr Kantaria, the MP of the Georgian parliament claimed that Georgia will file a request to Warsaw on the extradition of Mikheil Saakashvili, the former president of Georgia and former head of Odesa Regional State Administration if he stays in Poland for a long time as Interfax reported.

'If Saakashvili settles in Poland and freely gets around then the request will be filed there', he said.

He also reminded that the court in Georgia gave sentence to Saakashvili.

'He is not a suspect, the court session took place and the sentence was given and he is expected here'.

The court in Georgia sentenced Saakashvili for three years of the imprisonment due to the

malpractice in office and revoked him the citizenship in absentia. Also, Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine revoked the Ukrainian citizenship of Saakashvili last July on the basis of the false data that is indicated in the form for the Migration Service.

As we reported on February 12, Saakashvili was detained by the task force of the Border Guard Service in a restaurant in downtown Kyiv. Also, Mikheil Saakashvili, a former Governor of Odesa region and ex-President of Georgia, was readmitted to Poland, from where he illegally came to Ukraine last September.

On Sep. 22, 2017, the Mostysky court in Lviv found Saakashvili guilty of unlawfully crossing Ukraine’s border. In January 2018, the District administrative court of Kyiv refused Saakashvili’s appeal to the Migration service as to recognizing him a refugee. On Feb. 6, the court denied this claim again.
