A video published by the party shows law enforcers trying to serve an indictment in the case of breaching the state border on Sept. 10 by former deputy prosecutor general Davit Sakvarelidze. The law enforcers read out the text of the indictment to the suspect in a cafe. The text says he is suspected of illegal transfer of people across the state border, preventing law enforcing agencies from doing their job, and other violations.

Police officers invited Sakvarelidze to come to a police precinct for testimony. The politician promised to show up on Sept. 18 at 10 a.m. He says the police do not say which border he transferred the people across.

As reported, Saakashvili decided to enter Ukraine on Sept. 10 by train to avoid turmoil at Krakovets border crossing point. Intercity train from Przemysl to Kyiv was supposed to leave at 1:07 p.m. yesterday but was delayed for several hours. Some sources reported the train was delayed by law enforcers, but police soon disproved the reports. In its turn, Ukraine's major railway carrier Ukrzaliznytsia explained the delay in schedule by presence of a person on board who had no grounds to enter Ukraine.

Saakashvili subsequently arrived at Shehyni border crossing point where his supporters breached across the Ukrainian border and brought the politician and his delegation onto territory of Ukraine.
