Georgia may put ex-President Saakashvili on Interpol wanted list — RT News

Former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili may soon be put on the international wanted list, the country’s justice minister said. Accused of abuse of power, Saakashvili, who now lives in the US, was arrested in absentia on August 2.

“The court has ordered the pre-trial detention of [Saakashvili] and he has an obligation to face the trial. And all the measures prescribed by the law, including international ones, can be used to make this person appear before the court,” the country’s justice minister, Tea Tsulukiani, said, adding that “Mikhail Saakashvili is an ordinary defendant.”

On August 2, the Tbilisi City Court ordered the pre-trial detention of Saakashvili, former Justice Minister Zurab Adeishvili and former Defense Minister Davit Kezerashvili. All three were arrested in absentia after ignoring the Prosecutor General's Office summonses.

“In recent months Saakashvili repeatedly refused to appear for an interrogation as a witness on a number of criminal cases, and then he refused to be questioned remotely via Skype,” the court said over the weekend. “In such cases, under Georgia’s legislation, the Prosecutor General's Office has a right to seek a preventive punishment for persons who evade participation in the interrogation, which was done."

The Prosecutor General’s Office launched a criminal case against Saakashvili after he failed to appear before investigators for questioning July 28.
