Village head jailed for 8 years for ISIS recruiting
Mukharem Orozbaev recruited a local man for the organization banned in Russia.
The court passed a verdict convicting Mukharem Orozbaev, the ex-head of the Kucherlinsky Village Administration of the Stavropol region of recruiting for the Islamic State (ISIS), the terrorist group banned in Russia. The ex-official was sentenced to 8 years in a strict-regime jail, Interfax was told by the press service of the North Caucasus District Military Court.
According to the case file, while in office, Orozbaev enlisted a local man named Rakhman Bagbekov for the terrorist group and persuaded him to undergo training in a Syrian terrorist camp.
Bagbekov went to Cairo in 2015, and then to Syria, where jihadists trained him for a month. Orozbaev was the one paying for the trip. The fresh ISIS follower returned to Russia in early 2016 and was detained by special services.
An underground group of terrorist recruiters was exposed in Krasnoyarsk in early June. 11 people were detained right there. According to the investigation, they had recruited and sent people to Syria and Afghanistan. The leaders persuaded the people to join the Islamists with the help of special propaganda books and videos.

Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
