Three new defendants in thief in law Aziz's case, including representative of Health Ministry
Thus, for the moment there are 5 defendants in the case.
Three more people were detained in the case of the illegal release of Chechen thief in law Aziz Batukayev, better known as Aziz, from the Kyrgyz colony. According to local media reports, two doctors with the State Service for Execution of Punishment, including the former Head of the medical department, as well as a representative of the Ministry of Health, became new defendants in the case.
To recap, earlier, oncologist Emil Makimbetov and another specialist were detained in the framework of Aziz's case. Thus, for today there are 5 defendants in the case.
The CrimeRussia has repeatedly told the story of Aziz. Batukayev left the strict regime colony in 2013 by a court decision after doctors diagnosed him with acute blood leukemia. Within 6 hours after the court ruling on the early release, Batukayev took a charter flight from Bishkek to Grozny. Moreover, according to some data, it was State Duma deputy Adam Delimkhanov, a closest associate of Ramzan Kadyrov, that provided the crime boss with transportation on a private Bombardier Challenger 300 (a passenger plane of enhanced comfort).
In Chechnya, Aziz has influential patrons who had a hand in the fact that two criminal cases were 'provided' to him in his homeland - on drugs and a traffic accident. Thanks to these conditional formalities, Batukayev was able to stay in Chechnya. More than once there appeared photos on the web in which the thief in law spends his leisure time in the entertainment establishments of the republic.
On April 30, 2014, Narynsky City Court canceled its decision to release the lawyer, and Batukayev was put on the international wanted list. Since then, Kyrgyzstan has unsuccessfully sought the return of the fugitive thief.
