The Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) said that the leader of the underground network, Bislan Rasaev, suspected of preparing an armed attack on members of the Chechen opposition in Turkey, was following the orders of State Duma Deputy Adam Delimkhanov and Kazbek Dukuzov, a former suspect in the murder of Paul Khlebnikov. About it writes Daily Sabah.
According to Turkish intelligence, the Russians in particular were planning an attempt on the life of a Chechen dissident living in Turkey named Abdulhakim, who fought on the side of the opposition in Syria against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
MIT officials say Dukuzov has issued orders to kill four more Chechen dissidents in Europe since 2004.
Turkish intelligence also established that Rasaev was planning to buy weapons from Abdula Abdulaev, nicknamed “Ebubekir”, a smuggler and member of the Daesh terrorist organization.
Generous Russians were detained on October 8 in Antalya during an investigation by the Istanbul prosecutor’s office. They were imprisoned in Istanbul’s Maltepe prison pending trial on charges of conspiracy against Chechen dissidents in Turkey, “political and military espionage” and preparation for “hostilities,” the state-owned Turkish broadcaster TRT News reported on October 21.
