The Embassy of Uzbekistan in Russia has not received official notification about the expulsion of a citizen of this country of the correspondent of «Novaya Gazeta» Hudaberdi Nurmatov home, told RIA Novosti press-Secretary of the Embassy Alisher Usmanov.

Basmanny court of Moscow decided to expel Nurmatov for the violation of immigration laws. As reported by «Novaya Gazeta» on its website, Nurmatov (alias Ali Feruz), which previously was denied temporary asylum in Russia, was detained on Tuesday in Moscow near the office. In may, the interior Ministry refused to the correspondent in temporary asylum, the journalist filed before the decision of the complaint.

«If the court sentenced him only, probably, should pass some time until through official channels this all goes to the Embassy. I have no such information», — said Usmanov.

In March Nurmatov detained because of a violation of the rules of entry or the regime of stay in Russia and made him the administrative report, but the reporter did not appear in court. According to «Novaya Gazeta», Nurmatov was earlier arrested in Russia at the request of the Uzbek authorities, and from Uzbekistan he left «a few years ago due to the fact that local security services tried to recruit him». While the publication did not believe «that this man is a radical Islamist».

According to the source RIA Novosti, Nurmatov is illegal in Russia in 2011 and 2012 without a single identity document: then he allegedly lost expired passport for five years so it was never restored. In addition, according to the source, in 2015 Nurmatov works in «Novaya Gazeta» without a work permit.

At the same time in 2008 Nurmatov took place in the case of recruitment to radical Islamist organization «AK Takfir Val-Hijra»: a convicted resident of Tambov stated that he had involved it in extremist activities, recruiting in illegal armed groups.
