Saakashvili's brother must leave Ukraine, otherwise he will be forcibly expelled
David Saakashvili, the brother of the ex-president of Georgia, ex-head of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili, must leave the territory of Ukraine, otherwise he will be forcibly expelled to the country of his citizenship, the State Migration Service of Ukraine has reported.
"The grounds for the stay of David Saakashvili in Ukraine ended back in April 2017, while information on the legal cancellation of the permit for employment and residence permit of David Saakashvili was distributed by his brother Mikheil in social networks on April 16. Immediately after the cancellation of grounds for stay in Ukraine, this person was obliged to leave the territory of Ukraine, but this was not done, which is a sign of disrespect and violation of Ukrainian legislation," it said on Facebook on Saturday evening.
The State Migration Service of Ukraine recalled that on September 2, David Saakashvili was discovered by the employees of the National Police and taken to the Pechersky District Department of the State Migration Service in Kyiv. After finding out all the circumstances, the person's stay on the territory of Ukraine and providing them with explanations, the migration service employees made a decision on his forced return.
The department said that in accordance with the law and the decision taken, David Saakashvili must leave the territory of Ukraine, otherwise he will be forcibly expelled to the country of his citizenship by a court decision.
