The Ukrainian side has no legal grounds for the extradition to Georgia of the leader of the «Movement novih forces» of Mikhail Saakashvili. On this edition of «GORDON» said the former head of national police of Ukraine Khatia Dekanoidze, commenting on the fact that the Georgian and Ukrainian authorities are conducting secret negotiations for the extradition of Saakashvili.
«From a legal point of view, the extradition of Saakashvili in Georgia is illegal. But the Ukrainian government no longer operates within the framework of justice. Guilty at the court in Kiev is a circus. Very cynical, when Saakashvili is accused of having links with the FSB. It’s just ridiculous. But yesterday there was a statement in the Georgian media that the Minsk negotiations on extradition. Initially, the Georgian authorities did not want to see Saakashvili on its territory. But then I began to receive information that the negotiations are very intense,» – said Dekanoidze.
According to her, in Georgia against Saakashvili testifies ex-acting President Nino Burjanadze and former defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili.
«In addition, Georgia has intensified judicial proceedings against Saakashvili, which lasted five years and could not be completed. One of the things I want to finish before the New year. Saakashvili declared distrust of the Georgian justice. The case against him is politically biased. I read these materials. Know who is the main witness to the Georgian chief Prosecutor’s office? Nino Burjanadze, Irakli Okruashvili. This Pro-Putin officials. No other witnesses. Saakashvili appointed a new state attorney. When he asked for a month to read 10 volumes of the case, the judge said there’s only a week. There is no such precedent in the world», – said the interlocutor.
In her view, the extradition of Saakashvili «will be the end» for the former Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili.
«Therefore, logically, we can assume that some final agreement is already there. Ivanishvili is not the man who thinks how to put the country back on its feet. He has his Mercantile interests. This man’s long informal rules the country. I do not exclude that Ivanishvili something demanded and received. But, if the extradition of Saakashvili happens, it will be the end for the ruling «Georgian dream» and Ivanishvili», – concluded Dekanoidze.
On July 26, when Saakashvili was in the USA, the State migration service of Ukraine reported that the President Petro Poroshenko issued a decree on the loss of citizenship Saakashvili because of false data that have policies in obtaining Ukrainian passports. In particular, Saakashvili has informed that in Georgia he was arrested in absentia.
The politician said that the President’s decision is the result of «dogovornyak» between «oligarchic clans» Poroshenko and Georgian ex-Prime Minister, billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili.
On 5 September, Ukraine has received from the Chief prosecution of Georgia’s request about the search, detention and extradition of Saakashvili, against whom in Georgia opened a criminal case. 10 Sep ex-President of Georgia was able to return to Ukraine.
September 11, the lawyer Saakashvili appealed to the State migration service with the application of the policy for political asylum in Ukraine. October 24, the state migratory service announced that the petition Saakashvili was filed with violations.
31 Oct Saakashvili re-filed documents to the service, but on 1 November, his lawyer Ruslan Chernolutsky said that GMS refused asylum policy.
Saakashvili appealed in court and the refusal of political asylum, deprivation of citizenship of Ukraine.
30 Nov politician said that the migration service to extend his stay in Ukraine for three months.
