Saakashvili signs administrative offence report on illegal border crossing
Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of the Movement of New Forces party, former Georgian president and former head of Odesa State Regional Administration, first signed an objection proposed by his lawyers to a report on illegal crossing the border and then the report itself on Tuesday.
An Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported from Lviv that the objection was attached to the report. Following these procedures, Ukrainian border guards left the territory of the Leopolis hotel in Lviv, where Saakashvili is staying.
Before this, Saakashvili's lawyer Markiyan Halabala said "we will give Mikheil Saakashvili our objection to the administrative offence report, saying that we see the report on holding him liable as unlawful. Our reasons are set out on these sheets of paper, which Saakashvili will sign."
Saakashvili himself added his corrections and an objection to the report in handwriting and said "Okay. September 18. And before September 18, if they don't create obstacles for me, I will begin my trips around Ukraine."
"Beginning tomorrow, I will have meetings in all regions of Ukraine... We will change the system together with you," he said.
As reported, the Mostyska District Court in Lviv region would hear the report on Saakashvili's illegal crossing of the border on Monday, September 18. Saakashvili is supposed to be present at the hearing.
