Members of Gagiev's grouping convoyed to Moscow

Twelve persons accused of being involved in the Aslan Gagiev's grouping have been taken to Moscow, where the trial was moved for the sake of the safety of the litigation parties.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that, according to investigators, members of Gagiev's grouping committed 41 murders and murder attempts in the territories of North Ossetia, Moscow and the Moscow Region. Some members of the Gagiev's grouping have previous convictions.

Last night, all the 12 defendants were transported to Moscow, investigators have reported. They are accused of banditry, kidnappings, murders and attempted murders, the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) has informed.

The video posted today by the ICRF on the YouTube shows an aircraft landing near the special vehicle of the ICRF parked nearby. One of the passengers is convoyed out by special fighter and placed into the vehicle.

The case against Aslan Gagiev himself was isolated into a separate case: he is charged with organizing a criminal community, three gangs, as well as with six murders and illegal arms circulation. Gagiev refused to plead guilty.
