The United National Movement has released a statement regarding the hospitalization of Mikheil Saakashvili.
In the statement, the party appeals to the international community, the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia, international and local non-governmental organizations to take all possible measures to ensure the right to life and personal safety of the third president of Georgia.
In the statement, the party also appeals to the Georgian government to ensure the health and personal safety of Mikheil Saakashvili.
"It has been 25 days since President Saakashvili went on a hunger strike at the 12th facility in Rustavi. His hunger has already entered a phase when it can become extremely severe at any moment and he may require urgent medical care.
At a meeting of doctors on October 23, 2021, the commission of highly qualified doctors concluded that Mikheil Saakashvili should be transferred to a high-class clinic, which is not a prison hospital. Nevertheless, the Georgian government says that Saakashvili should be transferred to a prison hospital, where the president will be deprived of adequate treatment and his safety will be a serious problem. The same conclusions were made public by the Public Defender, due to which the "Georgian Dream launched a dirty campaign against her.
Speaking on behalf of the Georgian government, the Minister of Justice sentenced Mikheil Saakashvili to death today. Statements of the same content were spread by various members of the government, the Prime Minister, the mayor of Tbilisi and leaders of the ruling party.
We appeal to the international community, the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia, international and local non-governmental organizations:
Please take all possible measures to ensure the right to life and personal safety of the third President of Georgia. The Georgian government is not satisfied with Saakashvili's political imprisonment and is now waiting for the death of the country's third president.
We appeal to the citizens of Georgia:
Everyone, despite our political taste and personal attitudes, should not allow Mikheil Saakashvili to be taken to the Gldani Prison Hospital. The placement of the third president there by the government is tantamount to his assassination and will have dire consequences, both politically and historically.
We categorically demand from the Georgian government:
Ensure Mikheil Saakashvili's health and personal safety! Otherwise, you will get the hardest response from the Georgian society. Remember that in any situation, you and Bidzina Ivanishvili, whose personal political prisoner is the third president of Georgia, are fully responsible for Saakashvili's life!" reads the statement.
