Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili has reiterated her previous claims that she will not pardon arrested ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili, agenda.ge reports. 

My position about pardoning ex-president unchanged and unwavering – no and never”, Salome Zurabishvili said at a special news briefing today. 

She said Saakashvili, who was arrested a day before the October 2 municipal elections in Tbilisi, ‘does not comply with any criteria of a political prisoner or of an innocent victim'.

''He is a convict, who entered the country voluntarily and illegally, aimed to cause destabilisation. Nevertheless, considering high public and political interest, he should be treated as a special prisoner”, President Zurabishvili said.
