The former president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, soon after announcing the hunger strike, decided to end it.
“Now I received a message from the European parliamentarians, who at this stage categorically ask me to stop the hunger strike, so as not to give an excuse to the relevant services, as if I myself am doing harm. At the same time, the MEPs promise to mobilize all diplomatic efforts to ensure the protection of my minimum rights,” notes Saakashvili.
On December 14, a trial was held on the issue of postponement of the sentence for the former president of Georgia.
Saakashvili was not given the opportunity to attend the trial either physically or remotely. The penitentiary service refused to involve him remotely in the process, and the “Vivamed” clinic refused his physical attendance.
