Doctor of arrested ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, who is currently serving a prison term, says a medical council has agreed to transfer him to a civil hospital following the deterioration in his health. 

Saakashvili’s doctor Nikoloz Kipshidze told journalists outside the penitentiary facility No. 12 that although the council did not meet the arrested ex-president in person, they made a decision based on his analyses.
