The last of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s classmates will be released from prison Wednesday.
The friends were charged and convicted on a federal level for trying to curtail the FBI’s investigation of the terror attack. He will go into the custody of the Department of Homeland Security.
24-year-old Dias Kadyrbayev has been in prison for five years in Big Spring, Tx.
In 2014 when he pled guilty to obstruction of justice Kadyrbayev agreed to be deported back to Kazakhstan. He also waived his rights to appeal this extradition from the United States.
Three of Tsarnaev’s friends, Kadyrbayev, Azamat Tazhayakov, 24 and Robel Kidane Phillipos, 24 were complicit in hiding evidence after the attack. They removed a laptop from Tsarnaev’s dorm room and a book bag, fireworks, and other constituents of a shrapnel bomb. They even stayed mum when interviewed by the FBI. They refused to act as informants against the bomber.
Azamat was released from prison in 2016. He spent two years in prison for obstruction of justice. He has since been deported back to his homeland of Kazakhstan.
Phillipos was released from prison in February after being charged with lying to FBI officers during a terrorist investigation.Social media contests by Rewards Fuel
