In the morning of March, 8th, the district court in Solna, Stockholm, announced the verdict of the terror suspects Atabek Abdullaev, Bakhtiyor Umarov and David Idrisson. Abdullaev was cleared of charges of preparation of a terror attack and financing of terrorism. Idrisson was convicted to seven years of imprisonment, and Umarov received a six-month sentence.
Atabek Abdullaev is a Kyrgyz migrant worker who has lived semi-legally in Sweden, working without the proper permits. Following a more than seven month-long investigation, Abdullaev gave his own testimonial in court in early February. He is accused of financing terrorism and preparing a terrorist attack. Abdullaev was born in the Osh region in southern Kyrgyzstan and arrived in Sweden first time in 2017.
