MONTGOMERY VILLAGE, Md. (AP) — In a passionate plea, an uncle of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects urged one of his nephews to turn himself in Friday...When I was speaking to the older one, he started all this religious talk, 'Insh'allah' and all that, and I asked him, 'Where is all that coming from?'" said Tsarni, a corporate lawyer and executive.

My friend, 'Uncle Ruslan', has alleged comments about Big Sky that are 'misleading' at best.

Big Sky Energy Corporation

On March 8, 2006 the District Court of Clark County, in the State of Nevada, USA, granted a Temporary Restraining Order against Ruslan Tsarni, Maret Tsarnaeva and Farkhad Shakirov preventing them, or any based his authority to contract with Ligostrade on behalf of VEW in relation to the Atyrau Block as referred to above.

maret = the canadian aunt.

Allegations that money was laundered through the purchase of Sunninghill first emerged during a legal battle between Mukhtar Ablyazov, a Kazakh billionaire, and BTA Bank, which he formerly ran. The bank is now owned by the Kazakh state, which claims that Ablyazov embezzled up to several billion dollars. BTA is pursuing him through the British courts, which have frozen Ablyazov’s assets...

A statement by Ruslan Zaindi Tsarni, a US lawyer who has had dealings in Kazakh business affairs, was given in the High Court in December. He claimed that Kulibayev bought Sunninghill and properties in Mayfair with $96m (£59m), which derived from a complex series of deals allegedly intended to disguise money laundering.

He alleged that the money came from the takeover of a western company, which had been used as a front to obtain oil contracts from the Kazakh state. Kulibayev’s legal team have dismissed the claims.
