Court dismisses lawsuit Novaya Gazeta journalist Ali Feruz filed against MIA, challenging refusal to grant him asylum in Russia
Nurmatov’s lawyer intends to challenge the decision.
Judge Galina Grafova of the Moscow Basmanny Court rejected the lawsuit Novaya Gazeta journalist Khudoberdi Nurmatov (Ali Feruz) had filed against the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Nurmatov tried to challenge the decision of the MIA migration unit, which had refused to grant him temporary asylum in Russia.
Nurmatov’s lawyer intends to challenge this decision. "We will be thinking of how we could send him to a third country," added counsel Irina Biryukova.
Khudoberdi Nurmatov is a citizen of Uzbekistan, who was found guilty of violating the staying regulations in Russia on August 1 and it was decided to deport him.
The journalist said that he grew up in Russia and his family lives here. Nurmatov's lawyers filed a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights about his expulsion. After that, the Moscow City Court suspended the decision while the complaint was being considered.

The clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
