Atyrau city court sentenced a 29-year-old false telephone terrorist who three times called police about the alleged explosive devices deployed in public places.
The first phone call was made on August 9, 2012, when he informed about a bomb allegedly deployed in the elevator of the building belonging to one of the local businesses.
A criminal case has been initiated on that case and when he was released from custody on condition not to leave the city, he committed a similar crime.
On September 12, 2012, when special operations in Kulsary took place aimed at detention of group of suspects in terrorism, he called the police and informed that in Atyrau a bomb was deployed in the shopping mall Nassikha. After two hours he made another call and informed that an explosive device was hidden in the High School #17.
The inspection of both sites revealed that information was false. He was detained in the evening of September 12 by the criminal police employees. No link was found between the events in Kulsary and his false telephone messages. During the investigation it was established that he made false telephone calls in the state of alcoholic intoxication.
By the decision of the city court as per Article 242 of RoK Criminal Code (distribution of knowingly false facts about terrorism) he was sentenced to 2 years of imprisonment.
Another case with a teenager, who in March of 2012 “mined” the building of Atyrau profession-oriented school and was also found guilty under Article 242 of RoK Criminal Code, but released “to be under the parental supervision”.
Considering his young age, repentance and positive characteristics given to the student of the 10th from, the city court # 2 sentenced him to 1 year of freedom limitation.
To recall, on March 16, 2012, at 8:53 am an unknown person called the police and informed about he explosive device deployed in the building of profession-oriented school in Zhilgorodk. Instantly the mine sweepers and cynologists arrived to the school. The pupils and teachers were evacuated from the building, but the alarm appeared to be false.
The police discovered that the phone call was made from school watchman’s telephone, and on the next day the false terrorist himself was detained. It was the 10th form student of this school who admitted the guilt and said that he made a bet with his friends. He reacted to his schoolmate’s remark: “Do you have guts to play a joke with police?”, he dialed “102”, informed about the bomb and then returned to the class.
