PGO conducting extradition inspection on Saakashvili
The bodies of the Ukrainian prosecutor's office are checking the request of the Georgian side for the extradition of the former Georgian president, ex-head of Odesa Regional State Administration and the leader of the New Forces Movement political party, Mikheil Saakashvili, Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko said.
"After receiving this request [from the Georgian side for extradition], all materials were sent to the prosecutor's office for an extradition check. This is a preliminary stage. If it [the verification] is completed with a positive conclusion, then it will be possible to take further procedural decisions in strict accordance with the law," Petrenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday, answering journalists' question about what the Ministry of Justice's actions will be regarding the extradition request.
