The former owner of Cherkizovsky market is accused of two murders and illegal arms trafficking.

Businessman Telman Ismailov is put on the international wanted list, RBC reports with reference to press-secretary of the Basmanny Court Yunona Tsareva. According to her, the absentia arrest could be appealed.

November 11, Telman Ismailov was charged with organizing two murders (items (a, f, d), part 2 of Article 105, part 3 of Article 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). October 30, he was arrested in absentia. The term of arrest is two months from the date of his extradition to Russia or detention on Russian territory. According to Tsareva, at present the court does not know where the businessman’s whereabouts.

The international search for the persons is carried out through the intermediary of the National Central Bureau (NCB) of Interpol and is conducted on the territory of each of the states involved in the search in accordance with the norms of international law, as well as in accordance with national regulatory legal acts.

Ismailov's attorney Marina Rusakova confirmed the information about the absentee arrest of the businessman. She noted that the protection of the former owner of the Cherkizovsky market considers the court's decision illegal. According to her, such a preventive measure was chosen, as the court was informed that Ismailov was hiding from the investigation. However, the businessman provided the court with information about his whereabouts, the lawyer noted. The decision of the Basmanny Court will be appealed in the Moscow City Court on November 15.

According to the CrimeRussia, Ismailov is hiding in his villa in Turkey. It is noted that the Turkish police also have an issue with the businessman. According to law enforcement officers, Ismailov is involved in the case of the murder of thief in law Rovshan Dzhaniev (Rovshan Lenkoransky). Turkish security services suspect that it was he who transmitted information about the whereabouts of Dzhaniev to Nadir Salifov, known as Guli. It is known that the clans of Guli and Lenkoransky were at enmity for a long time.
