Doctors consider it inappropriate to leave Saakashvili in the prison hospital

A member of the group of doctors of the Ombudsman of Georgia, Giorgi Grigolia, said that former President Mikheil Saakashvili was really starving, and his stay in the prison hospital inappropriate, RIA Novosti reported.

According to Grigoliy, Saakashvili's state of health is not serious, however, based on the results of his tests, complications are possible soon. The doctor added that currently Saakashvili needs intensive treatment and therapy, and this cannot be ensured in prison conditions.

The politician's doctors and lawyers consistently reported his deteriorating health. A week later, the ex-president was hospitalized in a prison hospital.
