PGO won't demand new preventive measure for Saakashvili as he comes for interrogations
The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine will not ask the court to re-select the preventive measure against the leader of the New Forces Movement party, ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, as he comes for interrogations, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said.
"Saakashvili, after many strange actions, started to come to the interrogations. Now, when the preventive measure chosen for him ends, we will not extend it. He comes when summoned, that's why he does not need any encumbrances, in my opinion," said the Prosecutor General to the Internet edition of TSN.ua on Tuesday.
According to Lutsenko, in the near future Saakashvili will again have another series of interrogations. "Therefore, I hope that he will also come there and give appropriate testimony," said the Prosecutor General.
He also recalled that the examination confirmed the authenticity of the votes of Saakashvili and the wanted Ukrainian businessman Serhiy Kurchenko, who is associated with the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
As reported, the nighttime house arrest and restrictions on leaving Kyiv imposed by the Kyiv Appeals Court on leader of the Movement of New Forces party and former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili as a restraining measure expired overnight into February 6.
