ISIL recruiter from Kyrgyzstan sentenced to 6 years in Russian penal colony

Recruiter of the Islamic State terrorist organization from Kyrgyzstan was sentenced to six years in a general regime penal colony in Russia. Russian media reported.

In 2015, the man tried to persuade a resident of Astrakhan to go to Syria to fight on the side of the Islamic State. Khakimov was sentenced to 6 years behind bars on charges of recruiting a person to participate in an illegal armed formation. He fully acknowledged his guilt and actively cooperated with the investigation.

The 36-year-old convict Lachinbek Khakimov asked the court for indulgence, as his spouse and five children live in dependence on him.

Earlier, another Kyrgyz citizen got eight years in penal colony. He persuaded the Muslims in Samara to fight against «the unfaithful» and called them to the terrorists in Syria.
