Under its Rewards for Justice Program, the U.S. State Department is offering up to $3 million for information leading to the location, arrest and or conviction of a key ISIL operative –- Gulmurod Khalimov.
Khalimov was born in Tajikstan in 1975 and is a former Tajik special operations colonel, police commander and military sniper. He was once the commander of a police special operations unit in the Ministry of Interior of Tajikistan.
He is now a member of ISIL, or Da’esh, as it is called in Arabic, and an ISIL recruiter. In May 2015, he announced in a 10-minute propaganda video that he fights for the terrorist group, and he has called publicly for violent acts against the United States, Russia and Tajikistan.
The United States designated Khalimov a Specially Designated Global Terrorist in September 2015. He was also sanctioned by the United Nations as a terrorist in February 2016. He is wanted by the Government of Tajikistan. In June 2015, Interpol issued a Red Notice for Khalimov alerting member nations that he is a wanted person and should be apprehended for extradition to Tajikistan.
Since its inception in 1984, the Rewards for Justice Program has paid in excess of $125 million to more than 80 people who provided actionable information that helped bring terrorists to justice or prevented acts of international terrorism worldwide.
