The Georgian Ministry of Justice has denied reports of the deteriorating health of former President Mikheil Saakashvili. In a statement published on Facebook, the department notes that his condition is satisfactory.
“The Special Penitentiary Service explains that the information disseminated in the media in connection with the deteriorating health of Mikheil Saakashvili is not true,” the statement says.
It is noted that the prisoner receives the prescribed medications and is under constant supervision of a doctor during the hunger strike. His vital signs are normal, his blood pressure is 120 to 90, his pulse is 90, and his glucose is 101 milligrams per deciliter.
Earlier, Saakashvili’s personal doctor, Nikoloz Kipshidze, said that the condition of the former president of Georgia had worsened and he needed hospitalization. The doctor noted that it was difficult for the prisoner to walk and talk.
