Dilovar Dodoev came to the attention of Tajik authorities in 2015 when he appeared in an Islamic State propaganda video alongside Gulmurod Halimov, a former Tajik police colonel who became the extremist group’s so-called “war minister.”
In February 2019, Kurdish forces announced that the 30-year-old Dodoev had been arrested while trying to cross into Turkey from Syria.
Dodoev is a former soccer coach from Tajikistan‘s northern city of Istaravshan, and is thought to have been close to Halimov. Tajik authorities say they think Dodoev could provide valuable information about Halimov.
“Dodoev fought in the same Islamic State unit with Halimov” and “has a lot of information about the fugitive colonel,” a Tajik law enforcement official told shortly after Dodoev’s arrest was announced.
