As you know, after the terrorist attacks in new York in September 2001, the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush declared war on terrorists. Soon after at the military base of Guantanamo was a prison, into which were brought all the terrorism suspects detained by the Americans during anti-terrorist operations in different parts of the world.
After about six months after the opening of this prison got there and 24-year-old Uzbek Kamalludin Kasimbekov, which the New York Times called the party "Islamic movement of Uzbekistan". This organization was in close contact with the Al Qaida movement.
"The detainee claimed that he was recruited by a friend of Abdul Raouf. After he was recruited, Kasimbekov left Uzbekistan and went to Tajikistan. In August 1999 he underwent training at an unidentified camp, where he obtained the skills of handling a Kalashnikov (AK-47) and anti-tank grenade launcher. A week later he travelled from Tajikistan to some unknown location on the territory of Kyrgyzstan, where the leader of the "Islamic movement of Uzbekistan" Namangani captured three Japanese scientists," — said in the report about the identity Kasimbekova.
In 2000 Kasimbekov went to Afghanistan on the car, which transported the weapon. There he spent about 10 months working in the garage. Then he decided to visit his family who remain in Uzbekistan, but there he was detained, and then imprisoned in a local jail.
After his release, he returned to Afghanistan, where at that time "the Islamic movement of Uzbekistan" together with talibovna led war against the U.S. and its allies. Kasimbekov soon fell to the Americans in captivity.
Kasimbekov held in prison for nearly 8 years. He was released in 2010, and on July 22 was delivered to Latvia, where he was awarded the status of persons without citizenship. Man cannot return to Uzbekistan because there again will be judged for participating in the "Islamic movement of Uzbekistan" and the murder of two police officers.
According to official data, Kasimbekov requested the Tribunal to the United States after his release to send him to another country. All charges brought against him in Uzbekistan, he called unfounded.
In Latvia Kasimbekova provided living space. He also pledged to learn Latvian language and respect the laws of the Republic of Latvia. The journalists of de facto tracked down other Kasimbekova — Iraqi Asrat Taleb. About six months ago, the Iraqi citizen lived in Mucenieki. Taleb wanted to get refugee status, but in Latvia he was denied. Now he intends to go to Germany.
Seeing the photo Kasimbekova, Iraqi immediately remembered and said that he helped him find a job. Uzbek about the past he knows nothing, but called him sympathetic person.
With regard to the reaction of the Latvian law enforcement agencies, the security Police categorically denied the assumption that Kasimbekov he may return to war in the middle East.
