The Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia says they’ve sent their Ukrainian counterparts all the necessary documents to extradite ex-president of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, as Prosecutor General Natiya Songulashvili told one of Georgian TV channels on air, Interfax Ukraine reports.

“The prosecution has enough evidence that we believe should become a basis for an affirmative decision on the issue of his extradition,” Songulashvili said,

“As prosecution, we’ve sent all the possible evidence for creating a legal basis so that this decision is made,” she added.

As we reported earlier, Saakashvili was sentenced to 3 years of imprisonment in Georgia for abuse of power in the times when he was president. Saakashvili is also under investigation in Ukraine, as it’s believed he funded his political campaign with the money from a former Yanukovych ally.
