“The guilt is aggravated by new facts found in the investigation,” the main prosecutor’s office said. Saakashvili and Merabishvili were earlier accused of “abuse of powers with the use of violence.” Now accusations became harsher “up to deliberate causing of heavy bodily wounds.”
Saakashvili was president of Georgia from January 2004 to November 17, 2013. In mid-November 2013, several days before the expiration of his presidential term, he left Georgia and has lived mainly in the United States since.
Former Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili, who held this post from December 2004 to July 2012, was arrested in Tbilisi in July last year on accusations of abuse of power and several other offences and is still kept in custody.
