TBILISI, July 27 /ITAR-TASS/. Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has been summoned to Georgia’s Main Prosecutor’s Office for questioning, the ex-president’s mother said on Sunday.
Saakashvili who is currently staying in Kiev was summoned for the first time in March but refused to come to Georgia, saying “he does not intend to come to Tbilisi and cooperate with the Main Prosecutor’s Office.”
“A European Union official and my friends holding senior positions in the US leadership earlier advised me to leave Georgia … due to fears of the institution of criminal proceedings,” Saakhashvili said at the time.
Saakashvili’s mother, Doctor of Historical Sciences Giuli Alasaniya, said that “a representative of the Main Prosecutor’s Office called and said that he wanted urgently to deliver a subpoena to Mikheil Saakashvili to come for questioning on July 28.”
“The representative of the Main Prosecutor’s Office handed this document to me. He acted very politely,” she said.
The Georgian media reported citing sources in the country’s Main Prosecutor’s Office that Saakashvili had been summoned as a witness for participation in investigative measures but did not specify the cases, over which the ex-Georgian president would be questioned.
Georgia’s Main Prosecutor’s Office announced in March that Saakashvili had been summoned as a witness over a number of cases, in particular, over the case of the death of Georgian prime minister Zurab Zhvania, the case of a special operation to suppress the rebellion of a battalion of Georgia’s armed forces in Mukhrovani in 2009, illegal actions against the family of businessman Badri Patarkatsishvili and other cases.
Saakashvili has been mostly staying in Ukraine in the past six months where he reportedly works as an unofficial adviser to the Ukrainian government.
