Saakashvili files lawsuit against his expulsion from Ukraine

According to the report, the defendants in the suit are the State Migration Service, the State Border Guard Service and the Interior Ministry.

The plaintiff asks the court to recognize as illegal the actions of the respective structural units of the State Migration Service, the State Border Guard Service and the Interior Ministry on February 12, 2018, regarding the execution of the decision to return Saakashvili to the country of the previous stay. The plaintiff also asks the court to oblige the relevant structural unit of the State Migration Service to cancel this decision.

The court's press service reported that the issue of initiating proceedings in the administrative case was currently being considered.

In July 2017, President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree stripping Saakashvili of his Ukrainian citizenship.

On September 10, 2017, Saakashvili entered Ukraine without passing border control. In September, the court found him guilty of illegally crossing the Ukrainian border. In addition, the court rejected his lawsuit filed against the State Migration Service regarding his recognition as a refugee.

On February 12, 2018, Ukrainian border guards and representatives of the State Migration Service detained Saakashvili in Kyiv and expelled him to Poland as a person who illegally arrived from this country on September 10, 2017.
