Woman from Makhachkala suspected of financing terrorism
A 32-year-old resident of the capital of Dagestan is suspected of having transferred 40,000 roubles to the needs of the "Islamic State" (IS, a terrorist organization, banned in Russia by the court, – note of the "Caucasian Knot"), investigators report.
Meanwhile, according to investigators, the suspect knew for what purposes the money would be directed. "The woman was aware that the funds were intended to support groupings and illegal formations created in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic to commit terrorist crimes," the Investigating Department for Dagestan of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) reported.
A criminal case has been instituted against the resident of Dagestan under the article on financing terrorism (Part 1 of Article 205.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia), which provides for up to 15 years of imprisonment. In March 2017, the man to whom the suspect had transferred the money was sentenced under the same article.
