Employees of the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) served Timur Nishnianidze, an associate of ex-Odesa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili, a notice of suspicion in an embezzlement and abuse of power case late on March 9.

Prosecutors questioned Nishnianidze on March 10, while Kyiv’s Pechersk Court was scheduled to decide on arresting him at 7.30 p.m.

The alleged crimes took place when he was Georgia’s consul in Odesa in 2007 to 2012.
