Cabbie Khiairullozhon Matanov Indicted For Destruction of Evidence in Relation to Boston Marathon Bombing

The indictment alleges that Matanov's friend refused to help him reformat his computer to hide violent content or calls to violence he told him he was a bad Akhi for failing to help his Muslim brother.

Heavy.com:

Khiairullozhon Matanov, of Quincy, Massachusetts, a friend of the Tsarnaev brothers, has been indicted and charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly destroying or altering evidence, and making false statements in connection to the investigation of the Boston Bombing.
Also only 40 minutes after the bombings Matanov bought Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dinner. Sounds like a celebration to me. Manatov also expressed support and sympathy for the bombings if they were done In the Name of Islam.

He faces up to 20 years for the destruction of evidence and up to 3 years each instance in which he attempted to mislead the FBI.

More here at the Boston Globe.

I've so far been unable to locate any image of Matanov, if anyone runs across one. Please let us know.


Boston.com has an account of today's hearing and statements from Matanov's public defender here.
