“We’ve addressed the corresponding competent bodies of Ukraine three times and are expecting efficient measure from them,” he told the journalists while commenting the issue of Saakashvili’s extradition to Georgia.
Gogadze also noted that if the Georgian Prosecution didn’t have the grounds to demand the extradition, it wouldn’t have sent the inquiry. He also emphasized that now the Ukrainian power shouldn’t have reasons to refuse the extradition.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine signed the degree on revoking Saakashvili’s citizenship this July, due to the false information that the latter gave while applying. In particular, Saakashvili didn’t specify he was wanted in Georgia.
Last month, Ukraine’s prosecutor general’s office began checking Georgia’s request to extradite Mikheil Saakashvili, which reached the Ukrainian authorities on September 5. Georgian prosecutor general’s office charges the ex-president with embezzlement and power abuse.
Mikheil Saakashvili had also asked for political asylum in Ukraine, which he was refused.
