“Saakashvili came to Georgia of his own free will and fell into the hands of the authorities. They are afraid to kill him, they are also afraid to hand him over, so they decided to slowly starve him. Moreover, it will be very difficult to prove it. They will say, what do you say, we did everything, observed all the norms, the doctor came to him twice a day, etc.,” Arestovich said.
According to him, Saakashvili is a figure of such magnitude that he outweighs all the people in the Georgian government, they are afraid of him and do not know what to do with him.
When asked if Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky should intervene, Arestovich said he did not know if President Zelensky could do anything about this situation, “it depends on him.”
According to him, he would suggest to the Georgian government that Saakashvili be handed over to a third country.
“According to the information that I have, I would suggest transferring it to a third country, for example, to some kind of Austria, in order to provide full-fledged treatment, subject to detention. On the one hand, this will allow the Georgian side to ensure justice, but also to preserve his health. I would suggest this to the Georgian side, because they don’t want him to die in prison, then try him, but give him to a third party. So you will avoid suspicions that you poisoned him or want to bring him to death. So let’s get full treatment plus justice,” Arestovich said.
