According to representatives of the Georgian politician, all the diseases that were found in him could be caused by poisoning. Saakashvili's mother said that high levels of heavy metals were found in his body.
The imprisoned former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was poisoned after his arrest. This is evidenced by the data of the examination. This statement was made by the politician's lawyer Valery Gelbakhiani, Novosti-Georgia reports.
According to him, all Saakashvili's illnesses indicate poisoning, the former Georgian leader himself believes in this version.
“All the illnesses that Saakashvili has, all the symptoms, can be caused by this poisoning. He himself suspected for a long time that he was poisoned. Otherwise, his illnesses would not have developed like this,” the lawyer said.
Valery Gelbakhiani assured that details will be made public at a later date. However, he noted that the conclusion of the foreign examination contained a list of poisonous substances found in the body.
He also added that more research is needed to find out exactly when the poisoning could have occurred – during a stay in prison or after being transferred to the Vivamed clinic a few months ago.
Meanwhile, Mikheil Saakashvili's mother said that her son's body has an increased content of heavy metals: mercury, barium, thallium.
What do they say in the Penitentiary Service of Georgia?
The Penitentiary Service denied the allegations of Saakashvili's poisoning. The department added that the politician's representatives did not provide documents that would prove these allegations. The service said that the former Georgian president is now in the hospital under medical supervision.
“Appropriate medical measures are being taken. In order to avoid disinformation, we urge everyone to refrain from disseminating unverified and unfounded information,” the message says.< /p>
In December 2021, a doctor said that Mikheil Saakashvili could become disabled if he was not hospitalized in a hospital abroad. This is due to the fact that he has post-traumatic stress and Wernicke's encephalopathy, which can worsen.
