MOSCOW, Decembef 5 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Office of the Prosecutor General has submitted to court a criminal case for the North Caucasian warlord Ali Taziyev, who acted as a deputy to the region’s chief terrorist, Doku Umarov.
Spokespeople for the Prosecutor’s Office said Taziyev was man number two in the hierarchy of the North Caucasian paramilitary formation calling itself Imarat Kavkaz.
He is charged with the setting up of permanent paramilitary groupings, the members of which committed especially heinous terrorist crimes under his supervision.
The list of these crimes includes the bombing of a passenger bus in the town of Nevinnomyssk in December 2007, the bombing of a police station in the Nazran district of Ingushetia in August 2009, and an attempt on the life of Ingushetia’s Governor Yunus-bek Yevkurov.
