Kyiv court to decide on Saakashvili’s house arrest on Jan. 3
The Kyiv Court of Appeal on Dec. 22 delayed a hearing on house arrest for ex-Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili until Jan. 3, Kyiv Post reports.
The court said that the prosecutors had so far failed to submit necessary documents for the hearing.
Saakashvili argued that the authorities had delayed the hearing to Jan. 3 because they expected protests against his possible house arrest to be less prominent due to the holiday season.
“On Jan. 3 (the judges) are going to make a decision wanted by that the organized crime group that runs Ukraine,” he said. “…I don’t remember this level of lawlessness since the times of Soviet Ukraine.”
