Amnesty International has responded to recent developments in Georgia, and accused the Georgian government of carrying out political revenge following former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili’s transfer to Gldani No. 18 prison hospital, allegedly against his will. 

The world’s largest human rights movement has tweeted that Saakashvili was ‘denied dignity, privacy and adequate healthcare.’
