Georgia’s ex-dictator Saakashvili no longer Georgian

This 20 September 2013 video is called Torture Tape Rage: Thousands protest Georgian prison horror.

That scandal of sexual torture in the prisons of Georgia led to the downfall of dictator Mikheil Saakashvili.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Georgia deprives former president Saakashvili of citizenship

Today, 14:36

The government of Georgia has deprived former president Mikheil Saakashvili of his citizenship. The government has done that in its own words because Saakashvili has Ukrainian nationality and Georgians cannot have dual nationality. …

Saakashvili was … president … until 2013. He then went to the United States of America and later to Ukraine this summer where he received Ukrainian citizenship and was appointed governor of the Odessa region.

In his own country Saakashvili is wanted for abuse of power. His Dutch wife, Sandra Roelofs, now has returned with her youngest son to her parents’ house in Terneuzen.

An earlier, 21 December 2013, NOS TV report said (translated):

Mikheil Saakashvili, the former president of Georgia, has left his country, fearing to be prosecuted. His wife, Dutch Sandra Roelofs, said so in an interview with daily Trouw. …

Roelofs herself has remained in Georgia and let the newspaper know that she feels more like being married to the country than being married to her husband. She also criticized the political actions of her husband. He had too much haste and then “you will make mistakes and you will make enemies.” She says that Saakashvili refused to listen when she mentioned criticism she had heard on her travels through the country.
