"On August 4, the Georgian Chief Prosecutor's Office addressed the Polish prosecutors in the context of Mikheil Saakashvili's issue. Later on the same day, the Warsaw bureau of Interpol received the documents sent by the Georgian side that had been confirmed by their side during the phone conversation with a representative of the Tbilisi bureau of Interpol," the Georgian prosecutor's office said.
The Georgian agency said that the relevant legal procedures on the issue were ongoing.
In November 2013, Saakashvili left Georgia as Giorgi Margvelashvili became the country's president. Georgian prosecution pressed criminal charges against him in absentia, accusing the former leader of the Caucasian republic of embezzling immense sums from the state budget for personal use.
In May 2015, Saakashvili was appointed governor of the Ukraine’s Odessa region on initiative of the country’s President Petro Poroshenko, and stripped of his Georgian citizenship upon receiving a Ukrainian passport. However, Saakashvili resigned in November 2016, stating that the Ukrainian authorities did not want to fight corruption. Poroshenko revoked his citizenship when it was discovered that Saakashvili had violated Ukrainian law by providing incorrect information on his citizenship application.
The Georgian prosecutor's office repeatedly called on the Ukraine government to extradite Saakashvili but Kiev rejected the requests at least twice.
