Georgian ex-leader detained after returning to the country
Georgian law enforcement officers have detained former president and opposition politician Mikheil Saakashvili inside Georgia, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili as saying on Friday on the eve of local elections.
Saakashvili, who has been based in Ukraine, announced plans earlier this week to fly home for Saturday’s local elections despite facing prison in order to help “save the country” and called for post-election street protests.
The politician, who led Georgia’s Rose Revolution in 2003, considers the charges against him, which purport to alleged abuse of power and a cover-up, to be politically motivated.
