From Kazbek Misikov's testimony at hearing #18:
- How do you think it became possible for the terrorists to reach the school without having encountered any obstacles?
- I asked them. That Ali, he was more communicative during the first day, he was the Colonel's deputy. I asked him: "How did you get here?" He said: "No problems here. We paid money at each checkpoint. They didn't search us." I wasn't the only one who heard it.
- And what's your opinion on this?
- What do you think my opinion is? My opinion is that many more people should be sitting next to him [Nurpashi Kulaev]. But they are wearing uniforms.
