Nika Gvaramia, Mikheil Saakashvili’s lawyer, visited the former president in Rustavi prison and noted that he had not been physically abused.
Gvaramia stated that Saakashvili was very weak, he was visited by many people, they put him in a wheelchair. He had no ability to resist. Gvaramia added that as Saakashvili told him, he realized agitation and being nervous would put him in a worse condition, and that is why he did not resist.
“This situation must end with the removal of Saakashvili from this penitentiary system. The goal at this stage is to remove Saakashvili from this institution, from the Georgian penitentiary system in general, whether it is a hospital-shaped penitentiary system or a real penitentiary institution,” Gvaramia said.
