Saakashvili claims Lutsenko preparing his arrest and extradition to Georgia
The leader of the Movement of New Forces party, former Odesa regional governor and former Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili, has said he is confident that the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine is preparing documents for his arrest and extradition to Georgia.
"Prosecutor General [Yuriy] Lutsenko has recently launched the process of preparing documents on my arrest and extradition to Georgia for the actions committed in the period of my presidency," Saakashvili wrote on his Facebook page on Saturday, October 28.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko deprived Saakashvili of Ukrainian citizenship in July 2017.
Ukrainian Deputy Justice Minister for European Integration Serhiy Petukhov said on September 5 that the Ukrainian Justice Minister had received a request for Saakashvili's arrest and extradition from the Georgian Chief Prosecutor's Office.
On September 10, Saakashvili, accompanied by his supporters, entered Ukraine by actually forcing his way across the Polish-Ukrainian border.
Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said earlier that there were currently no circumstances preventing Saakashvili's extradition to Georgia.
