Mikheil Saakashvili, the former president of Georgia and former head of Odesa Regional Administration finds the sentence of the Georgian court illegal and contradictory to the international standards and common sense. He reported this as Facebook.
'The judgment of the president for his right to pardon that is not limited (I used it in 133 cases of the former military) shows that the process possesses the political nature. It also shows that the Georgian authorities did not find anything illegal such corruption or other crimes about me during five years', he wrote.
According to Saakashvili, Tbilisi City Court that sentenced him is under complete control of Bidzin Ivanishvili, the major stockholder of the Russian 'Gazprom'. He is sure that Poroshenko met Ivanishvili earlier and discussed the ways to liquidate him. Later Poroshenko revoked his Ukrainian citizenship.
As we reported the Tbilisi city court found Mikheil Saakashvili guilty in accordance with the case of Sandro Girgvliani’s murder and sentenced him to three years of imprisonment. Saakashvili is accused of abusing power, as, according to the investigation, the then-president of Georgia unlawfully promised Data Akhalaia, then-Chief of the Department of Constitutional Security, to pardon those convicted for the murder. This way, Gia Alania, Avtandil Aptsiauri, Aleksandre Gachava and Mikheil Bibiluri were pardoned. This caused public indignation, as a result of which, Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili was fired.
