Another trial of Saakashvili to be held in Tbilisi

Tbilisi City Court on November 15 appointed another trial of ex-President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, TASS reports.

The new trial concerns the embezzlement of state funds in the amount of more than $ 2.7 million. It is not yet known whether Saakashvili will take part in it. & Nbsp;

Earlier, the European Court of Human Rights refused to transfer Mikheil Saakashvili to a civil clinic and demanded an end to the hunger strike. The lawyer of ex-Georgian President Nika Gvaramia said during a briefing that the Strasbourg court recognized Saakashvili's case as a priority.

Recall that Saakashvili was detained on October 1. Previously, 13 criminal cases were initiated against him, in some of which he was convicted in absentia.
