Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk City Court that declared a book with citations from Quran as an extremist content has been suspected in collaboration with the Western security services and “the Islamic State” terrorist organization.
Russian State Duma MP Shamsail Saraliyev told parliamentarians he had requested the Investigation Committee and the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia to check the whole chain of those behind the Court’s verdict to verify whether they collaborate with the security services of Japan, U.S., West-European countries or have ties with the ISIL.
The MP thinks the verdict looked “to stir up rebellion and chaos in the country.” Saraliyev called the actions of the judges as a “terroristic sabotage.”
Members of the State Duma expressed hope the court of upper instance will reject the verdict. Yaroslav Nilov, the head of the State Duma Committee for Social and Religious Organizations, said the deputies are preparing a request to the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation for explanations to the courts over the verdict.
