The council of doctors does not recommend the authorities to transfer Saakashvili to prison

TBILISI, 14 & nbsp; December./TASS /. The council of doctors, formed under the & nbsp; Ombudsman of Georgia, believes that & nbsp; ex-President Mikhail Saakashvili has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and & nbsp; considers it inappropriate to transfer it from the & nbsp; military hospital in Gori back to & nbsp; prison. Neurologist Tengiz Tsuladze said at a briefing on & nbsp; Tuesday, summing up the results of monitoring the health of the former head of state.

“[Saakashvili] has post-traumatic stress disorder. This means that & nbsp; he & nbsp; received this stress, trauma in the & nbsp; penitentiary, and & nbsp; especially in & nbsp; Gldani (prison hospital on the & nbsp; outskirts of Tbilisi & nbsp; & mdash; note TASS). Therefore, we & nbsp; will not & nbsp; advocate its reverse translation in & nbsp; the plan that & nbsp; treatment of the disorder should take place in & nbsp; an environment that does & nbsp; remind a person of & nbsp; those circumstances in & nbsp; in which he & nbsp; was stressed & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; & mdash; said Tsuladze.

As the doctor noted, Saakashvili could have gotten stressed after his arrest, transfer from & nbsp; prison to the & nbsp; prison hospital, and & nbsp; also because of the & nbsp; so-called Shumka, which was arranged for the former Georgian president by other prisoners serving punishment in & nbsp; prison in & nbsp; Gldani.
