Rati Bregadze: Mikheil Saakashvili's statement unequivocally shows that this person has not realized what crime he has committed, moreover, he does not regret it - it is impossible for him to be pardoned
Minister of Justice: It is an insult to the public when the National Movement declares its readiness to work on decreasing the number of prisoners and protecting their rights
Tina Bokuchava: Levan Mgaloblishvili sneaked out of the building when we asked him to test for alcohol - by the way, he was a member of the National Movement in the past, for which I am very sorry
Another verbal confrontation in the Parliament session hall followed the statement of the Minister of Justice, where he described the situation in the penitentiary institutions during the National Movement rule
Tina Bokuchava demands to check Levan Mgaloblishvili with a breathalyzer test and to confirm that the member of Georgian Dream violated the regulations and came to the session under the influence of alcohol
Minister of Justice to the opposition: It is surprising that you still have this "Freedom of Misha" flag on display and you are still talking about the former commander-in-chief who renounced his Georgian citizenship
At the Parliament session, Levan Mgaloblishvili called Tina Bokuchava a "bastard", which was followed by Ana Tsitlidze throwing papers at the Georgian Dream member
Rati Bregadze: Mikheil Saakashvili’s health condition has improved, and when there is an appropriate recommendation from the doctors, he will be transferred to a penitentiary institution
Minister of Justice says all three prisoners, who escaped from the clinic, have been arrested
Rati Bregadze about fugitive prisoners: There is nothing dangerous, this type of crime happens in all states - if any employee is found to have violated the law, they will be held accountable
Rati Bregadze: When there is a relevant recommendation from the doctors, the convict Saakashvili will return to the penitentiary
According to Rati Bregadze, a new, small penitentiary facility will be built in Rustavi
Joint Intergovernmental Georgia-Hungary Commission’s meeting chaired by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili
Rati Bregadze: If the issue of re-admission of the Polish doctors is raised again, we will not be able to make a positive decision until we do not have information about the purpose of this type of action that is completely inconsistent with medical, ethical or legal norms
Rati Bregvadze: Unfortunately, we saw a completely unbelievable action, which does not fit into any ethical or legal norm - convict Saakashvili, of course, saw how this sample was taken, but I cannot talk about the details
Rati Bregadze: The Polish doctor himself confirmed the fact of placing the sample taken from the convict in a sock, I call on everyone to refrain from making provocative statements and deceiving the public
Rati Bregadze: Based on the fact that the Polish Embassy was involved in the process of bringing doctors and was also a recommender, I request the Minister of Foreign Affairs to hear the Embassy's position on the incident
Polish doctors enter Vivamed clinic to visit Mikheil Saakashvili
German Ambassador to Georgia: Georgia made enormous progress on the EU path - I can say for Germany, we want to say "yes"
The Ambassador of Israel to Georgia - Hamas is Isis. It must be defeated
