Former Gitmo Prisoner Arrested for Terrorism in Moscow

Another, former Guantanamo Bay detainee was re-arrested this time in Moscow for blowing up a gas pipeline in January of 2005:

A former Guantanamo prisoner has been arrested in Moscow on charges of blowing up a gas pipeline in Russia’s Muslim Tatarstan Republic in 2005, Interfax said Thursday.

Two residents of Naberezhnye Chelny, Ravil Gumarov and Fanis Shaikhutdinov, and local resident Timur Ishmuratov disrupted a gas pipeline in the centre of Bugulma, not far from the local Federal Security headquarters, in January 2005, according to the investigators. The explosion however caused neither casualties nor serious damage.

A trial by jury ruled that the Gumarov and Shaikhutdinov’s guilt had not been proved and set them free in September 2005, but the Supreme Court of Russia anulled the ruling and called for another trial. The trial was scheduled for February 2006, but had to be delayed for the absence of the defendants, who now have been detained.

Gumarov and Ishmuratov were engaged in terrorist groups’ activities in Afghanistan and served terms at the Guantanamo base in Cuba with other Taliban and terrorist suspects.

Last year another former Guantanamo detainee was arrested for being part of the largest terrorist organized assault on a city when Nalchik Russia was attacked.
