The Harju County Court in Tallinn hearing the case of suspended mayor of Tallinn Edgar Savisaar on Wednesday morning, June 14, called an ambulance to check on Savisaar in the courtroom.
The defense lawyer for Savisaar, Oliver Naas, said that Savisaar's pulse rate before the court sitting was 118 and his blood pressure had been 165/98 in the morning.
Peep Podder, a prominent doctor known to be familiar with Savisaar's health condition over many years who was present in court, advised the court to call an ambulance, which the court did.
