Georgia: Doctors from various departments gathered in front of the US Embassy to Georgia in support of the former President. The demonstrators call on the US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, to take part in the process to allow Mikheil Saakashvili to receive medical treatment abroad.
We call on Ms. Degnan to get involved in this matter to rescue the man, the patient who first raised his voice against the evil world. This world punishes our President, the man who shared the rules of the modern world, the doctors said.
Yesterday, on May 2, Mikheil Saakashvili’s trial was postponed due to his deteriorating health condition.
Mikheil Saakashvili’s family members announced large-scale rallies yesterday.
On April 27, a council of doctors set up by the ombudsman prepared another report on Mikheil Saakashvili’s health. According to the report, Mikheil Saakashvili has a protein deficiency.
The health professionals said that the former President consumes about 1/4 of his daily calories.
Doctors explain that the proteins that are not supplied to him resulted in a deficiency of protein in his body which caused weakness.
According to them, it may be caused by resistant post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, which eventually leads to anorexia or loss of appetite.
The leader of the Georgian Droa party, Elene Khoshtaria, supports imprisoned former President Mikheil Saakashvili and his family and says she will do everything possible that she can and take part in all measures to protect the rights of the former President.
The Ambassador of the European Union to Georgia, Carl Hartzel, also said that Georgia is responsible for Saakashvili’s physical and psychological health.
I do not have information about the health of Mr Mikheil Saakashvili from the first source, and also, I am not a doctor to discuss his health condition. But we are receiving reports about Mikheil Saakashvili’s health, and we are very concerned. The most important and crucial issue is that the state is fully responsible for its physical and psychological health; this is a fundamental right.
