UFA, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - Four Russian citizens, who are the ringleaders of regional structures of the international terrorist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami, the press service of the Federal Security Service department in the Russian Republic of Bashkortostan, Ural Region, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The FSB agents with the OMON riot police from Bashkortostan detained four republican residents, who are active members of the international terrorist organization,” the press service said. The detainees have been tracked down by the law enforcement agencies since 2010.
“During the searches the evidence that proved their consistent illegal activity was found,” the press service said.
Criminal cases were opened against the accused.
The Russian Supreme Court found Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami as a terrorist organization and put it on the list of banned organizations in Russia on February 14, 2003.
“In 2007-2013 more than 35 people were brought to criminal responsibility for participation in this organization in Bashkortostan,” the press service reported.
