Saakashvili files lawsuit against his expulsion from Ukraine

ROTTERDAM: Former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili poses in front of the Erasmus Bridge on Wednesday.—AFP

Former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, who was deported from Ukraine to Poland on Monday, arrived at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, the Netherlands on Wednesday. Saakashvili told Dutch national broadcaster NOS on Wednesday he was there "because of what happened in Ukraine... but obviously it's a country I come to very often anyway".

Based on the family reunification rule, Saakashvili can relocate to the Netherlands because he has a Dutch wife.

On Tuesday, Saakashvili gave a press conference in Warsaw and said he had been blindfolded and rushed first by van, then by helicopter to Kiev global airport. We will see how long I stay'.

"I will return to Ukraine, because I have a legitimate right to live there".

Saakashvili was the president of Georgia from 2004 to 2013.

Steve Bannon says White House instructed him to invoke privilege before Congress
He voluntarily met with the same committee in January but refused to answer any questions over a 10-hour period. Conaway said the committee will now consider next steps to get the answers they need from Bannon.

He has already been successively stripped of both his Georgian and Ukrainian nationalities, rendering him stateless.

A former governor of Ukraine's Odessa region, Saakashvili was once an ally of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, but became one of his greatest foes.

On February 13, Saakashvili was in Warsaw, Poland, where he had a press briefing for journalists. The fact that he was sent to Poland was explained by the fact that it was readmission, but not deportation, as he as a persona non grata was returned to the country from which he arrived illegally.

Saakashvili is also wanted in Georgia for embezzlement and abuse of power, which he describes as politically motivated charges.
