PGO sends National Police notice to put fugitive Saakashvili on wanted list – Lysenko
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) has written and sent to the National Police chief Serhiy Kniazev a notice to put Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of the New Forces Movement party and ex-governor of the Odesa region, who escaped from police custody en route to being questioned by the Security Service of Ukraine, on the wanted list, PGO Andriy Lysenko wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko earlier said that Saakashvili had 24 hours to voluntarily come to the investigator.
"In 24 hours the entire law enforcement system will do all to ensure that stateless person Mikheil Saakashvili, who is obviously connected by financial fraud with oligarchs, including those from Moscow, could appear before the investigator to be served a suspicion notice and then before the court where the prosecutor's office will submit a motion on house arrest," Lutsenko said.
Yet, he added, that such a mild measure of restraint is under question after Saakashvili's escape from the police vehicle.
Lutsenko called on Saakashvili to visit an investigator at the SBU office on Vorovskoho Street at 09:00 on Wednesday, December 6.
