Sentence imposed over probe into financing of terrorism

The evidence gathered by the Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasian Federal District of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in collaboration with the Main Directorate for Combating Extremism of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia was found by court to be sufficient to sentence resident of the Republic of Dagestan Kurbanmagomed Medjidov. He was found guilty of committing an offence under Part 1 of Article 205.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia (financing terrorism).

During preliminary investigation it was established that Medjidov shared radical religious views of an international terrorist organization. Residing in the Republic of Dagestan from April to the middle of May 2017 he made seven transfers to a bank card account via a mobile application in order to finance terrorism. This card was used by participants of the international terrorist organization.

The Southern Military Court sentenced Medjidov to 7 years of imprisonment in a general regime penal colony.
