Saakashvili Asking Ukraine For Political Asylum

Mikheil Saakashvili, New Forces Movement, political asylum

Former chairperson of the Odesa Regional State Administration / Leader of the New Forces Movement Mikheil Saakashvili has filed a request for a political asylum in Ukraine.

His lawyer Markiyan Halabala told this to the Ukrainian News Agency.

"Requesting additional protection and seeking a political asylum is actually same thing, with the only difference that the term 'political asylum' is more frequently used," the lawyer explained.

According to Halabala, the State Migration Service has not responded yet to the request of Saakashvili even though it is obliged to provide a reply within 24 hours.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko stated there were reason to deny Georgia an extradition request of Saakashvili.

Georgia asked Ukraine to extradite Saakashvili.
