Ukraine: 'Entire case against me is fake' - Saakashvili claims judge dismissed unfairly

Ukraine, Kiev
December 22, 2017 at 11:09 GMT -00:00 · Published

Former Georgian President and leader of the Movement of New Forces Mikheil Saakashvili claimed that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko issued a decree to dismiss a judge for supporting his innocence, during a hearing at the Pecherskyi District court in Kiev on Friday.

"She [the judge] will be dismissed because she said the truth that all the charges against me is fake," he stated, adding that the decree was issued yesterday, saying that it also aims to reorganise the whole court which made a decision to release him.

Saakashvili attended a hearing on an appeal from the prosecutor's office against a decision not to place him under house arrest.

The hearing has been postponed to the third of January because of the judges haven't received enough documents. "Today they were scared of the reaction of the society," added Saakashvili.
