U.S. expresses concern over criminal probe against Georgia's former President Saakashvili

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Giorgi Margvelashvili President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili commented on the letter of the U.S. senators who expressed concern over the launch of a criminal probe against Georgia's former President Mikheil Saakashvili, Trend reports.

“We pay great attention to the position of our partners. It is of great importance in terms of continuing Georgia's democratic development,” Margvelashvili stressed. “Meanwhile, Georgia's political spectrum guarantees that no facts of political persecution of opponents will be recorded in the country."

The letter of the U.S. senators was sent to Georgia's Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.

Meanwhile, prosecutor’s pffice said on August 5 that it was filing new criminal charges against Saakashvili.

“Investigation against Mikheil Saakashvili and Ivane Merabishvili continues under third part of article 333 of the Criminal Code [exceeding official authorities committed with violence], supposing imprisonment from 3 to 8 years as punishment,” the prosecutor’s office said.

New criminal charges against Saakashvili came a week after the ex-president was charged with exceeding official authorities related to the break up of anti-government protests on 7 November 2007, and “seizure” of Imedi TV and other properties of late tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili. Court ordered pre-trial detention for Saakashvili in absentia.
