MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) - The Lefortovsky District Court of Moscow put under arrest Yulay Davletbayev, who is suspected of masterminding several terrorist acts in Moscow, press secretary of the court Yulia Skotnikova told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Davletbayev was detained by the commandoes of the Federal Security Service on the suspicion of heading the terrorist group, two members of which were earlier put under arrest on the accusation of masterminding several terrorist acts.
“The court ruled to put Davletbayev under arrest for one month and 14 days until July 20, 2013,” Skotnikova said.
She explained that the court tried a petition from the detectives, heard the positions of the litigating parties and ruled that the putting of Davletbayev in the detention centre is lawful.
The National Anti-Terrorism Committee said earlier that on May 20 in a brief exchange of fire in the Moscow regional town Orekhovo-Zuyevo two bandits were destroyed, one more bandit named Amerkhanov was detained. Numerous components of homemade explosive devices, including the so-called suicide bomber’s belt, striking pieces of metallic screws were found in the flat, where the bandits had entrenched, a source in the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said.
“Detained Amerkhanov gave confessing testimony that the group received a task from the warlords of the terrorist organization Islamic Party of Turkestan to commit several terrorist acts in Moscow and escape in Afghanistan after that. He also noted that Yulay Davletbayev, born in 1970, was appointed as the direct coordinator of the terrorist act that lacked at the moment of the special operation in Orekhovo-Zuyevo,” the source said.
The commandoes in the Federal Security Service detained Davletbayev on Thursday.
“Preparing thoroughly to a terrorist act, Davletbayev found a job for him in Moscow, which permitted to move round the Russian capital, not raising special suspicions of the law enforcers. Driving round the city as a taxi driver, he picked up the places, which are mostly vulnerable for staging a terrorist act, hoping for the heaviest consequences and numerous casualties,” the source in the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said.
