By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Tbilisi Mayor, David Narmania is not ruling out the possible seizure of Georgian ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili's property.

"The mechanisms envisaged by the procedural legislation must be adhered to," Narmania said Aug. 20 commenting on a possible seizure on Saakashvili's property.

Mikheil Saakashvili is being accused of embezzling large amounts of budget funds.

"The law enforcement officers are required to consistently comply with the procedural legislation. Based on this, all the steps taken by them proceed from the law," Narmania said.

David Darchiashvili, an MP from Saakashvili's National Movement Party, also said today that the prosecutor's office is planning to seize the former president's property.
