Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said that he was beaten during his transfer from the Rustavi prison to the prison hospital in Gldani as it is reported on his Facebook page.

“Despite the categorical refusal, they pulled me out of the car, and with the continuous intimidation of the criminals, they threw me to the ground and hit me in the neck several times. They dragged me by the hair, and, of course, I resisted, just like in the ward, where some incomprehensible prison medical staff approached me, and this time I really hit the analyzer (medical equipment - ed.), Because that they started injecting me something without my permission," Saakashvili said.

The politician also noted that he was transferred to a prison hospital by fraudulent means, promising to send him to a regular city clinic. When Saakashvili was taken to the Gldani prison, he said, the prisoners stirred up a commotion, insulted and intimidated him.

At the same time, the head of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia, Rati Bregadze, claims that Saakashvili allegedly attacked the employees of the Gldani prison as Georgia News reported.

“When Saakshavili was moved to institution #18, he, unfortunately, inflicted physical and verbal abuse on our employees, those employees who care about the security of the country and the protection of the rights of every prisoner for 24 hours. We will not let anyone insult them. Of course, there will be an appropriate legal response, now we are studying this fact," Bregadze said in an interview with Imedi TV.

As we reported, on the 39th day of the hunger strike, Saakashvili was transported from the Rustavi prison to the medical facility for the accused and convicts #18 (Gldan prison).

As it was reported earlier, 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.

The Ukrainian side has repeatedly stated its plans to return Saakashvili to Ukraine. At the same time, the Georgian authorities do not intend to extradite the detainee.

 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" for the sake of "freedom of Georgia."
