Court in Egypt acquits Ingush student Ali Dzeitov
After a lengthy consideration, a court in Egypt has declared the charges against Ali Dzeitov, a native of Ingushetia, untenable and decided to acquit him.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that five students from Ingushetia were detained in Egypt in August 2018; they were accused of extremism, espionage and links with the Islamic State (IS), a terrorist organization banned in Russia by the court. An adviser to the head of Ingushetia and a well-known Ingush theologian visited Egypt to negotiate the return of students, but the young people remained under arrest. In January 2021, three of them were deported from Egypt to Russia. Ali Dzeitov, a student who was not deported along with his three fellow countrymen, reported about law enforcers' pressure on him.
Now, the Internet newspaper "Ingushetia" has reported that Ali Dzeitov, an Ingush student, who was kept in a Cairo prison for more than three years on charges of terrorism, had been acquitted.
After Ali Dzeitov returns to his homeland, he will be assisted in medical rehabilitation, the press service of the Ingush Ombudsperson has reported.
