The Interior Ministry of Georgia promises to arrest Irakli Okruashvili, the ex-Minister of Defense [currently staying in France] in case of his return to Tbilisi , RIA Novosti informs alluding to Shota Utiashvili, the Interior Ministry spokesman.


"Okruashvili is wanted now. People who are wanted, are arrested, when found. And I see no reasons to do it in any other way in case with Okruashvili. In this way, if he returns to Georgia, he will be arrested. We will act in strict accordance with the law", Utiashvili said.

The ex-Minister of Defense, who has a status of a political refugee in France, doesn't comment upon the opposition members' messages on his possible return to Tbilisi.

In georgia Okruashvili is in absentia convicted of bribery, professional negligence, abuse of power and money laundering. Before his detainment in October 2007 Okrushvili accused Saakashvili of lobbying his family's interest when purchasing weapons for the army, and of organizing the operation aimed to eliminate Badri Patarkatsishvili, in the live air of one of the Georgian TV channels.

After the detainment Okrushvili was released on bail, then left the country and departed for France.
