Umarov's fellow is a fellow of Georgian special services?2012-11-14 17:50
Georgian authorities have refused to expel the Chechen Akhmed Chatayev, Doku Umarov's emissary in Europe, who has long lived in Georgia and Austria as a political refugee since 2010, to Russia. Georgian side accounts its refusal for the fact that his case is very complicated and must be checked, since Chatayev has left footprints in Chechnya, Europe and Georgia. Akhmed Chatayev is the only surviving witness of the famous Georgian special operation services in Kakheti.
Why have the Georgian authorities delayed the extradition of Chatayev to Russia? "Ivanishvili is now trying to find a niche in the foreign and domestic policy. First of all, he wants to position himself as a democrat and an independent politician who is trying to improve relations with both Russia and the West. Ivanishvili's decision not to extradite Russian citizen Chatayev follows from his political principles. We should understand that if he expels Chatayev on first Russia's demand, he seriously shakes his authority in Georgia", international affairs analyst Stanislav Tarasov told GTimes.
Akhmed Chatayev is the Chechen who fought against the "feds" during both campaigns. In 2003, he became Doku Umarov's closest aide, that time - the vice-president of Ichkeria and the head of the "National Security Service" of the self-proclaimed republic. In a battle Chatayev lost his right hand in an explosion, for which he was dubbed the one-armed Akhmed. It is possible that this name was a mark of distinction, since famous Khattab had a similar nickname.
The one-armed Akhmed was the object of constant surveillance of the FSB and the watchful tutelage of foreign human rights activists. In 2003, when Chatayev moved from Chechnya to Austria, he soon received political refugee status and a residence permit. Refugee status was the cover. In Europe, Akhmed Chatayev was a resident of the "Caucasus Emirate", responsible for the supply of money and weapons.
