Rabat – Morocco has extradited a Russian ISIS suspect arrested in 2018 to Russia, said the Center for Public Relations of the Russian Federal Service Security (FSB).
Moroccan and Russian news outlets quoted FSB saying, “The law enforcement agencies of the kingdom of Morocco arrested a Russian citizen, Salamov Ramazan Magomednuriyevich, born in 1970, who was wanted for his involvement in the activities of international terrorist organizations.”
FSB said that Salamov tried to settle in Casablanca in 2018 after ISIS lost significant portions of territory in Syria in 2016.
The suspect also promoted religious extremist ideology among residents of Dagestan, a Russian province on the Caspian Sea.
Moroccan police arrested the suspect in July 2018 at the Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca.
The suspect has been the subject of an international warrant for alleged terrorism and extremism issued by Interpol at the request of the Russian authorities
