According to Salome Zurabishvili, the President of Georgia, "pardoning or not pardoning" former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili is not an issue that will change the damage done to the country.

The President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili spoke about this in an interview with the French TV channel France 24.

The President thinks that Saakashvili "should be treated well", like many other presidents around the world who have been sentenced to prison.

"I know this. I'm sorry about that, I'm doing a few things to alleviate this situation. But the damage done is done by the decisions made by the government, and "pardon-not-pardon" is not what will actually reverse that damage.

I think he [Saakashvili] should be treated well and I have been saying that out loud - just like many other presidents around the world who have been sentenced to prison. There are electronic taggin, which we know about, and other forms that are more suitable for the country that will join the European Union," said Zurabishvili.

When asked by the journalist whether she wants to "maintain the status quo", Zurabishvili said that there are "legal considerations" and noted that she refrains from "entering into explanations".
