Mikheil Saakashvili, the former head of Odesa Regional State Administration claimed that Ukraine appealed to Poland with the request on his readmission as Ukrainian News reported.
'Day before yesterday the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry appealed to the Foreign Ministry of Poland with the request for my readmission', he said.
According to Saakashvili, the authorities are not interested in his presence in Ukraine and expressed the astonishment that the law enforcement bodies strive for the home arrest for him due to the possible attempts to hide from the prosecution.
Readmission is the mutual liabilities of the states that are established at the international agreements to accept back own citizens and citizens of the third countries without citizenship who illegally arrived at the territory of one of the sides or legally arrived but lost the grounds for a legal stay.
As we reported earlier, on December 8 the enforcement officers detained ex-governor of Odesa region Mikheil Saakashvili and took him to the Security Service department, where he was placed in a detention facility. He is accused of supporting a criminal group.
On December 5, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko announced that the protests organized by Saakashvili had been financed by allies of ex-President Yanukovych. As proof, he made public the audio file, in which Saakashvili’s aide is talking to a trustee of oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko. Saakashvili called these accusations “fake”.
Pechersk Court of Kyiv refused the Prosecutor General’s Office to choose the home arrest as the restriction measure for Mikheil Saakashvili on December 11.
