Messages sent to girlfriend - The US expertise has deciphered Temirlan Machalikashvili"s phone

Experts of the Criminalistic Service of the Ministry of Justice of the United States have thoroughly deciphered the phone of Temirlan Machalikashvili who was killed during a special operation in Pankisi.

15 thousand files are encrypted for expertise, including short text messages, sound messages, video formats.

As the lawyer states according to encrypted files, Machalikashvili"s connection with terrorism is not confirmed. The majority of SMS messages of a 19-year-old were sent to Temirlan"s girlfriend. Makhalakashvili"s girlfriend was not interrogated by the investigation.

In the only message in which Machalikashvili was talking about the explosion, he again joked with his girlfriend. The lawyer of Machalikashvili"s family claims that the prosecutor"s office released this part of the correspondence with the changed context.

500 pages of encrypted and decrypted messages do not read any connection with Akhmadi Chataev. According to the father of the murdered young man, he has already determined who the phone number belongs to regarding which the Prosecutor"s Office claims that his son contacted Chataev.
