Ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saalashvili, who has been on hunger strike for 35 days in Rustavi Prison No.12, refuses to meet with a medical council claiming it is politicized and demands an alternative commission. 

Saakashvili’s lawyer Nika Gvaramia says, although his defendant trusts and respects every member of the medical council, he will no more participate in their observations.
