"Mr. Saakashvili continues treatment in the therapeutic department..." | Nino Nadiradze


"Mr. Saakashvili continues to be in the therapeutic department. Today we invited a team of psychiatrists and yesterday we conducted examinations and a full CT scan," Nino Nadiradze, director of the Viva Med clinic, told reporters and assessed the health condition of Georgia's third president.

"The laboratory data is not really getting worse," she said. According to her, every examination of Mikheil Saakashvili is done after agreement:

"We always agree with the patient on any tests, no matter what we are going to do, Mr. Saakashvili will be informed about it, of course his personal doctor will tell him, I will warn him too. After that, he gives us his permission and only then is this or that examination done. Nothing happens without his permission.

Even in private conversations, he expresses his complete confidence and gets offended when I hear different assessments from you. We restrain ourselves in this forced mode by Mr. Saakashvili's own desire not to have this study done quickly, forcibly.

Mr. Saakashvili continues to be in observation in the therapeutic ward. Today we had specialists, we invited a group of psychiatrists, other instrumental examinations were carried out, a complete computerized tomography was conducted yesterday, - says Nino Nadiradze.

She even criticizes the media - "As for the topics about things not being made public, I understand, you need news, but this is about the patient's health, it is not a topic for gossip." She says that with the consent of Mikheil Saakashvili himself, full documents were handed over to representatives of the public defender and his personal physician, but "this should not be a matter of public discussion."

"I am responsible for my clinic. The patient expresses his full confidence in us. The patient is not complaining about our treatment tactics or our research tactics," Nadiradze said.

Asked if Mikheil Saakashvili would be sent back to prison Friday after the investigation is completed, Nadiradze said: "I want Mr. Mikheil to be healthy, I want the patient to be healthy, and we are doing everything for that, we don't know. who will do what."
