Prosecutors in Georgia on Saturday summoned ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili for questioning over a raft of criminal cases.The statement said Saakashvili has been summoned to appear on Thursday in connection with 10 cases including a possible probe into the 2005 death of former prime minister and his close ally Zurab Zhvania.Dozens of Saakashvili allies have been placed under investigation for corruption and abuse of office charges since Ivanishvili's Georgian Dream coalition took power at 2012 parliamentary polls that spelt the end of Saakashvili's 10-year grip on power, which was marked by a politically damaging 2008 war with neighbour Russia.
