The mother of the deceased 26-year-old Boston terrorist suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was repeatedly warned about his extreme views, a close relative claimed last night.
The warnings were issued over 25 years ago but no action was taken, said the suspect's aunt, Aymani Kadyrov. Speaking through an interpreter, the 73-year old said she repeatedly told the suspect's parents that the then 3-month old was 'heading for trouble'.
“I used to listen to him gurgle threateningly, and felt very strongly that these were the beginnings of his extreme jihadist views. I said to the mother 'You’ve got a right one here,' but she just smiled and took no action. Later I was in the same room when Tamerlan chose to urinate in his own nappy, a sure sign that he cared as little for his own well-being as he did for anyone else's. I told the mother 'oops, looks like little Tammy’s had an accident', but again his mum did nothing except shrug and change the boy's nappies.”
Aymani’s other attempts to warn the authorities came to nothing. “We were in the bakers when Tamerlan started shouting uncontrollably, a barely comprehensible tirade against the West and its decadent ways. I immediately said to the shopkeeper ‘good set of lungs on him, hasn’t he?’ Instead of arranging for his immediate rendition to Camp X-Ray, the baker merely nodded. You can’t say I didn’t try.”
