We also urge Mr. Saakashvili to accept the recommendation of his doctors and accept the medical care that they say he needs. Such a statement made today US Ambassador to Georgia.
“In light of the medical teams’ recent assessment that he is at high risk and needs urgent treatment, as well as the Ombudsman’s statement that the Gldani prison hospital is not sufficient, we urge the Government to ensure that Mr. Saakashvili is immediately provided with the medical care that he needs in a fully equipped medical facility.
We also urge Mr. Saakashvili to accept the recommendation of his doctors and accept the medical care that they say he needs. This is obviously a very sensitive and emotional situation. Right now the priority needs to be on addressing Mr. Saakashvili’s mental health and physical well-being.
It’s our strong recommendation to the government to ensure that he is provided with medical and mental health care that needs. He should be treated fairly and with dignity, in accordance with Georgian law and international standards”, - said Kelly Degnan.
