How to tell the wife Marlen Asanov – Aisha, the arguments of the prosecution remained the same.
“To my surprise, the trial was open – let the next of kin. The words of the Prosecutor and judges we have in that time studied on the memory, all the arguments were repeated exactly what they are “particularly dangerous criminals that threaten society.” Therefore, even under house arrest they can not let go. Man very well said in court that ordinary people hang the image of terrorists, while in fact the terrorists – those who puts on false charges in prison,” says Aisha Asanova.
