ROSTOV-ON-DON, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The North Caucasus District Court Martial sentenced a warlord of the so-called Urvan jamaat Alim Bitokhov and his accomplice Alim Khubiyev to life in prison. Other defendants were convicted from 16 to 22 years in prison.
The court found them guilty of terrorist crimes.
Under the guilty verdict in January 2005 a resident of Kabardino-Balkaria Alim Bitokhov, who was a supporter of the radical Islamic religious movement, has formed an armed gang, which was seeking to separate the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria from Russia and to form an Islamic state on the territory of the republic with a Shariat rule. He was seeking to attain his goal through attempts on the life of law enforcers.
At the trial the public prosecutor demanded to sentence Bikhotov to life imprisonment and a fine of one million roubles. He demanded to pass the same verdict for Bikhotov’s accomplice Alim Khubiyev. The public prosecutor demanded to sentence other defendants to various terms in prison from 18 to 24 years and the fines from 200,000 to one million roubles.
