On Sunday, November 21, the personal physician of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, Nikoloz Kipshidze suggested that a psychologist and a psychiatrist should be involved in the treatment of a politician. He told reporters about this after visiting the politician at the military hospital in Gori.

The doctor said that assistance of foreign specialists might be required to evaluate Saakashvili's condition.

"There is no imminent threat but I can't say that the risk is gone and everything is fine. We should wait and see what happens next. [...] He continues to receive therapy, general weakness and headaches persist, and blood pressure is unstable," Kipshidze said, speaking of the condition of his patient.

The first day of withdrawal from the hunger strike passed normally, yet doctors are concerned about Saakashvili's neurological condition, and the arrival of neurologists is expected in the coming days, he said.

Saakashvili, former Georgian president and currently a citizen of Ukraine, secretly arrived in Georgia on September 29 and was detained in Tbilisi on October 1 and put in jail in the city of Rustavi soon afterwards, where he declared a hunger strike.

On November 8, he was transferred to the prison infirmary in Tbilisi's Gldani district without the consent of his lawyers and family.

Saakashvili was transferred to a military hospital in Gori on November 20, and he stopped his hunger strike.
