First Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on state building and law Mikhail Emelyanov questioned the conclusion according to which the student of Moscow state University Alexander Ivanov (Barbara Karaulov) recognized the mentally ill. This view he expressed in an interview with "Tape.ru" on Monday, October 31,.
"This conclusion raises some doubts", — said the Deputy. In his opinion, the student was aware of the action when he tried to join the banned terrorist organization "Islamic state" (IG).
He suggests that Karaulova will eventually be sent to compulsory treatment. Responding to a question about whether such a sentence would be a precedent for future judicial practice, Emelyanov noted that potential followers of students will receive real terms. "It will be difficult for all mass sent to psychiatric treatment," he said.
Speaking on the nature of the issued conclusion, the Deputy suggested that "apparently, some kind of public campaign that is". "On the one hand, the girl be subjected to criminal punishment is unreasonable, there is some lag [from other countries]. On the other hand, still impossible to prevent the spread of extremist views and actions", — said the MP.
Earlier on Monday a representative of the Moscow military district court reported, what Karaulova suffers from schizotypal personality disorder. From the documents announced in court, it follows that the diagnosis of the girl was delivered in June 2015.
According to the prosecution, she tried to join the terrorist group BADR, a member of the IG, whose members carried out the suicide bombing. According to the investigation, she "initiative made contact" with representative groups and "worked through the possibility of re-attempts to" travelling abroad with documents in the name of a foreign person.
The girl was first arrested on 4 June, 2015 while attempting to illegally cross the Turkish-Syrian border. Together with her were taken into custody 13 citizens of Russia, who wanted to join the militants of the "Islamic state". After checking Russia's Investigative Committee refused to initiate criminal proceedings against her, but in six months a student was arrested in connection with IG.
