    “When flying to Dubai, 11 cartridges of 9 mm caliber from the FN-8 pistol were found in his suitcase during the pre-flight inspection.”

    Well .. well 11 cartridges !!
    If FN-8 can be fitted with a silencer piece, may be he was upto something when in Dubai.

    FN-8 is not Russian made.
    FN Herstal which makes this type pistols is a Belgian company.
    So most probably what the colonel is saying is true. It was in his suitcase by mistake.
    But this guy seems to be one of Iseyas’ trusted men, because the tyrant would not have sent him to Moscow to attend a military helicopter show if he was not very close to him. That means someone of whom the boss is happy. You can guess why.
    The sad part is that some of these colonels are inheriting their boss’ legacy of crimes.

    Does the colonel has a name? Why is it kept secret. These are important info to identify the death squad of iseyas. Hope some one will dig out and expose.
    Apart from that the whole situation is very very serious. You can not just stack 9 pistols in your case and board a plane and enter some ones country. Ezias nay 40 alata.

      It’s about a magazine (a container) with 11 bullets of caliber 9.

      More important than that is reason why he was in Moscow.
      He was sent to see an exhibition of helicopters. And that means Iseyas is trying to buy a new helicopter, Why ? .. dictators keep always one ready to reach a safe destination in case of a tumult.
      He has a few aging Soviet era military helicopters but he want have a brand new and reliable machine. I understand his worries.

    According to Russian websites, the name of the colonel arrested is Abraha Maasho. They have posted a photo.
