News

The Kiev Regional Court did not satisfy a suit of the State Immigration Service against former president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, InterPressNews reported citing NewsOne.

Mikheil Saakashvili was requesting to be granted the status of a person requiring additional protection. Mikheil Saakashvili's lawyer Ruslan Chernolutzky said they would appeal against the court's decision.

According to the lawyer, the State Immigration Service violated the law when it did not grant Saakashvili’s request for additional protection. The ex-president's lawyer requests the Service to examine the application once again and focus on the risk of possible extradition to Georgia.
