Shalva Khachapuridze, a lawyer of imprisoned former president Mikheil Saakashvili on Friday said that if his client’s intoxication is confirmed, the family would address the international community for reactions.
"I confirm that Saakashvili's condition is really serious. It has worsened especially in recent days. If it is determined that we are dealing with intoxication and his life is at risk, that it may be a matter of seconds and minutes, the public will gather. We will probably turn to the international community, the diplomatic corps here and our actions will completely change”, Khachapuridze said.
Mariam Jishkariani, a head of domestic Empathy NGO, said earlier on Friday that a conclusion received from the US had “confirmed” Saakashvili was intoxicated.
