The head of the Public chamber Commission on medicine Leonid Roshal, speaking on the eve of the witness in the case of Beslan terrorist Kulaeva, believes that «a small handful of those present at the court turned the process into a political show», informs «Interfax». On the question of who exactly he was talking about, Roshal said: «They know themselves. Them there three people. I have the impression that they are talking with someone else's words and managed by someone.»
In conversation with journalists at the airport of Beslan, before flying to Moscow Wednesday, he called for «all remaining witnesses not to participate in this process and thereby terminate a political show, which turned what is happening in the courtroom».
According to Roshal, he heard yesterday lot of words of gratitude from women Ossetia bereaved. «However, a small handful of people present in the court tried to judge me, and not Kulaeva - Roshal said. - Their purpose was not to hear more about the facts and throw me in mud. Terrorist Kulaev, who suits me in the grandchildren pleased with this performance, and how I was unjustly insult». «I during his long life never experienced, and no idea what to get it exactly in Ossetia», - he stated.
Doctor Roshal said that on 1 September 2004 came voluntarily to Ossetia «not to participate in such process». «No truth to these people don't need it, Roshal said. - They make a political show, and it's a shame for Ossetia, they have turned the court into a farce». «And do not hide behind a misfortune. Those who truly heartbroken, cry at night in the pillow. The court goes on - here and judge him. Want to judge others to judge. It is your right, I'm not going to take part», - is indignant Roshal.
This «right»seems poised to take advantage of the head of the Committee «Voice of Beslan» Ella Kesaeva (one of the women, member of the Public chamber of the Russian Federation). In an interview with echo of Moscow», she stated that for the insult is prepared to submit at Roshal in court. «He (Roshal. - «HP») acted as a doctor and as a defender of the system, and we are outraged,» said Ella Kesayeva, in an interview with echo of Moscow".
Roshal admitted that he had not come to Vladikavkaz, if he was not asked about the victims. He said that he called the woman and told him that his testimony are waiting for the court (called Roshal, Chairman of the Committee of the «Voice of Beslan» Ella Kesaeva), reports the portal «Caucasian knot».
Anticipating his testimony, Roshal emphasized that never cheated anybody and will say all he had seen and heard. He said that he did not recommend to fly to Vladikavkaz. Roshal warned that «people behave correctly, a lot of politics».
«I was advised not to go here, " explained Roshal. Said, people behave incorrectly, that this policy, and so I never said my words will not be heard but shame and nothing will happen. But I decided that I have to go. I hide from you nothing, my conscience is clear».
Roshal said that as only learned of the capture of the school and that his name is indicated in a note with the requirements of the militants decided that I should leave immediately Beslan. In 14 hours 1 September, he flew on a plane of the government of Russia in North Ossetia. On arrival Roshal gave a mobile phone, and he immediately got in touch with the terrorists.
«My first question is: I flew, you caused me. I was the answer, you are not empty, only the four of us. I ask: what are the requirements? They answer that will speak when the school will visit four. I ask: where are you from? "I said to the mountains. - I said that the highlanders do not do so, don't hit their women and children. He hung up.»
Roshal said that he tried to persuade militants to let in school as a doctor. He asked for permission to bring children water, medicines. This action, which each time talking with Roshal, stated that they expected to only four, and children themselves have declared a dry hunger strike. «I said to them: these three, Dzasokhov, Zyazikov and Aslakhanov, - policy. And I'm the doctor. The answer was the same: one you ».
Answering questions on why the militants demanded along with the other exactly Roshal, he stated that he did not know. The witness remembered that I had read in the media that it allegedly ordered the militants, and that he FSB officer.
«Journalists, particularly the TV reporters, serves all as profitable for them. No I did not order. My conscience is clear before Ingush, Ossetian, Chechen children. Then a rumour that I am employee of FSB. I live by himself, on his conscience. And in Beslan came because he thought it necessary».
Roshal assured the victims, that the staff was not talk about planning for the assault. The doctor said that was present at the conversation of the former President of North Ossetia Alexander and Deputy FSB , who claimed that the assault will not be. According to the witness, Dzasokhov behaved with dignity. «I don't know, do something another in its place. We agreed that go to school together. He was ready. But the insurgents again refused: only four. I want to go and with Aushev. I say we go along. He replied, no, I go alone.»
«What was the name of them? - Roshal expressed their assumptions. - Aslakhanov they considered a traitor. Zyazikov also. They could also take a hostage, and then nominate and more stringent requirements. But could just kill. It is my assumption. I was ready to negotiations. When talking with a fighter, I suggested: I'll go with you, provided corridor, everything will be fine. But again was refused.
Roshal, numerous, often unpleasant questions victims, had to also comment on the work of the operational headquarters and the responsibility of officials involved. The witness stated that still does not know who headed the headquarters and it was not his «problem». He said that he is following closely the developments around Beslan, including the judicial process on the case Kulaeva.
«I have always said and will say that the people of Ossetia, decent people. And then during the terrorist attack all Ossetian people behaved very selfless, save the children. I was here all the time pull in politics. What is the goal: to judge this bandit or Putin, , , Zyazikov? This and want to terrorists themselves. You want to Vladikavkaz was Shariat court to women raped. Because of this there is no need to say thanks to Putin, although I don't always agree with him. But it turns out that you try more statesmen, not terrorists. Soon he () the title of hero Ossetia specified. I read in the Internet that you promised to forgive him, if he tells the truth».
Representative of the victims Taimuraz asked Roshal, why four and even if he is still not met with terrorists in the school. The lawyer cited the testimony of former hostages, who claimed that the gunmen were waiting for negotiations and guarantee policies life. It Roshal said that the terrorists to be trusted and turned to the example of the «Nord-OST», when he was a negotiator.
«Barayev I swear promised that night to meet with me, and in the morning let go of all children. But he had not fulfilled his promise: he released only eight. And 20 children were there, and five of them died. Here is their promises», - stressed Roshal.
Meanwhile, the main issue, and even accusations Roshal expressed victims were the words of the doctor said on the second day of the attack, that the children can live without water for up to eight days. Roshal acknowledged that knows about the reaction of the women on this phrase. However, he tried to convince them that this is not a fraud and referred to the scientific medical literature. In addition, he stressed, in its practice, there were many examples when the earthquake from the rubble on the ninth day of extracted live babies.
Despite the indignation of some of the women, who accused Roshal that his talks have not helped save the children, many victims thanked him for his help and for what Roshal at the first request arrives at the trial.
«We want to say thank you for your help and support. This heroic act, that you immediately responded to our request. As we have seen, such an act is capable of a few. We have lost the most precious thing we have. We want you not believe those who say that the politics. We want to know the answer: for that killed our children, but in addition to Kulaeva no perpetrators. Who made irresponsibility, let him be punished. Thanks again» - turned to Roshal, Chairman of the Committee «Mothers of Beslan» Susanna Dudieva.
«Today in Beslan is growing spiral wrap emotions. This sting will be tormented for many years. What is really needed now to build in Beslan is a psychological centre. This is not a heroic deed. For the sake of the beginning and the end of the session I had come here. Thanks to you», - said in response to Dudieva doctor Leonid Roshal.
