Saakashvili’s condition allows for a postponement of the sentence, I will try to submit the opinion of the friend of the court before the end of my term, by December 8 - Lomjaria

I’m going to submit the opinion of a friend of the court, I have 1 day left in my position and I’m going to use this position in relation to Mikheil Saakashvili, said Public Defender at a briefing, where a group of doctors informed the public about the health condition of the former president.

“As his health condition is assessed as serious and we have a fairly detailed reasoning, I think that Mikheil Saakashvili’s condition allows for a postponement of the sentence.

However, since my council was not able to fully assess his situation because we do not have more specialized experts and we did not conduct a complete study, which was impossible, there may be other circumstances, the party will submit it. It is possible that the criteria for exemption may be met by the expertise drawn up by the party, but I am speaking on the basis of the conclusion developed by my experts, I will try to send the opinion of the friend of the court before the end of my term, i.e. by December 8”, - said Nino Lomjaria.
