    TBILISI, January 21 (RIA Novosti) - Georgia's Minister of National Security Valery Khaburdzania and Prosecutor-General Irakly Okruashvili left for Moscow by air on Wednesday morning.

    As RIA Novosti was told in the public relations department of Georgia's Ministry of National Security, it is expected that on Wednesday the Russian side will extradite Shota Chichiashvili, detained in Moscow in summer 2003, to Georgia.

    The Georgian National Security Ministry suspects Chichiashvili of organizing the abduction of Spanish businessmen, a British banker and International Red Cross staffers. Besides that, he is suspected of a number of major crimes on Georgia's territory.

    As officials of Georgia's Prosecutor-General's Office told RIA Novosti, Irakly Okruashvili will stay in Moscow for several days, and in the course of the meetings with his Russian colleagues intends to raise the question of extradition of former governor of Kvemo Kartli (a region in Georgia) Levan Mamaladze to Georgia. The Georgian Prosecutor-General's Office suspects Mamaladze of misappropriation of state property and financial machinations.

    Valery Khaburdzania will return to Georgia on Wednesday.
