Military court upholds verdict to four Dagestanis-figurants in terrorism case

The Military Court of Appeal has upheld the sentences to four residents of the Agul District of Dagestan convicted on charges of involvement in a terrorist community and an illegal armed formation (IAF).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on May 31, 2021, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Ramazan Tagriverdiev, Ramazan Kurbanov, Rakhmatula Magomedov and Gadad Ramazanov, residents of the Agul District of Dagestan, to prison terms from 10 to 18 years at a maximum security colony. The fifth defendant, Ali Aliev, accused of plotting the murder of the head of the Agul District, was acquitted. The Court ignored the defendants' statements that their confessions at the initial investigation were obtained under pressure, their advocates assert.

Let us remind you that according to investigators, in May 2015, in the village of Tpig, Agul District, Magomedov and Ramazanov united for committing terror acts and created an IAF, while Tagriverdiev and Kurbanov joined it in June 2016. The grouping extorted a million roubles from a local resident, set fire to grocery stores with alcohol in the village of Tpig and stole property. They also plotted attempts on the life of law enforcers and the administration head of the Agul District, but their detention prevented this, investigators considered. However, the defendants refused to plead guilty.
