A judge in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, has postponed until December 3 the hearing into the case of former Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili, who was arrested on November 20 after arriving in Tbilisi following five years spent abroad. Okruashvili left Georgia in 2007 after investigations were launched into allegations of bribe-taking and the formation of an illegal armed group. He was later tried in absentia and sentenced to 11 years in prison. (Reuters video)
