Sevdia Ugrekhelidze: For 2 years we have not heard a single word from the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe about Mikheil Saakashvili, not only his health and life are in danger, but also the credibility of this institution

I am very sorry that for two years we have not heard a single word from the Commissioner of Human Rights of the Council of Europe regarding Mikheil Saakashvili's case, not only his health and life are at risk, but also the credibility of this institution - the Council of Europe - the Vice-President of the Congress of Local and Regional Self-Governments of the Council of Europe, Sevdia Ugrekhelidze said.

According to the information of the "United National Movement", the 46th session of the Congress of Local and Regional Governments of the Council of Europe was held today in Strasbourg, where Tatia Nikolashvili, the Deputy Chairman of the Political Council of the "United National Movement" and Sevdia Ugrekhelidze, the Vice-President of the Congress of Local and Regional Self-Governments of the Council of Europe gave a speech.

"I heard your answers about Mikheil Saakashvili, but it is neither sufficient nor adequate. According to the report of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture, the current situation in the "Vivamed" clinic is repressive, humiliating and unfavorable for the improvement of Mikheil Saakashvili's health condition.

I am very sorry that for two years we have not heard a single word from the human rights commissioner of the Council of Europe about Saakashvili's case. Not only his health and life are at risk - especially after the death of Navalny - but also the credibility of this institution - the Council of Europe. This is very painful for me, because I have been represented in this institution for a long time and I believe in this institution, whose actions are not enough for me and the Georgian voters", said Sevdia Ugrekhelidze.
