Georgian Public Defender Nino Lomjaria says that the country’s ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili is receiving ‘proper attention’ in Rustavi Prison No.12 and that ‘no violations of his rights’ have been reported so far by her representatives in terms of Saakashvili’s living conditions.
Lomjaria says that her office has been monitoring Saakashvili’s conditions in prison since the day of his detention in Tbilisi on October 1.
“We are actively communicating with the prison administration, as well as medical personnel, regarding Saakashvili’s health condition (who has been on hunger strike since his detention),” Lomjaria said.
Lomjaria also commented on the recent release of details of Saakashvili’s health by the Special Penitentiary Service of Georgia (blood pressure, pulse, saturation, glucose), and stated that ‘despite high interest in the issue,’ the agency should refrain from disclosing such information.
