The former Minister of Defence of Georgia, David Kezerashvili, has moved to Israel.
Mr Kezerashvili, 31, headed the defence ministry during the Georgia-Russia war in 2008, but was dismissed from the post amid criticisms of the way the war was conducted.
Sources told the Rezonansi newspaper that an investigation is being conducted into corruption in the ministry during Mr Kezerashvili's tenure, including possible arms procurement. The former minister did not comment.
