If Saakashvili will not be able to attend the trial or if there is no relevant consent from Vivamed, we will submit a motion for the court to come to the clinic itself, but on one condition, there should be live broadcast - Khachapuridze

If Saakashvili will not be able to attend the trial or if there is no relevant consent from Vivamed, we will submit a motion for the court to come to the clinic itself, but on one condition, there should be live broadcast. Such a statement made today Shalva Khachapuridze, one of the lawyers of the former president.

“Mikheil Saakashvili is in serious situation and I doubt that the rather extensive list of witnesses will be fully questioned. As for tomorrow’s process, we are not going to postpone this process, on the contrary, we are going to put several motions.

First, this is the justification for exemption or postponing the sentence, secondly, we have requested information from both Vivamed and various agencies, to which we have not received answers. The third initiative will be that if he is not able to come, he will be remotely involved or the process will be conducted at the Vivamed clinic.

If Saakashvili will not be able to attend the trial or there will be no relevant consent from Vivamed, then we will submit a motion for the court to come to the clinic itself, but on one condition, there should be live broadcast”, - said Shalva Khachapuridze.
