Yamadaevs hope for fair punishment of Khalid's murder organizers
Representatives of Yamadaev's clan hope that the trial on the case of murder of Ruslan Yamadaev, former RF State Duma member, which started today in Moscow, will be "fair and open". At the same time, they express bewilderment that the court ostensibly failed to identify the organizers of the crime.
"First of all, we expect openness, honesty and fairness from the trial. We should also very much like to hear the names of organizers and orderers of the crime at the trial. Unfortunately, the information available today leads to the conclusion that, just like in the case of the attempt on Isa's life, they are not going to name the organizer. Although not only us, the whole world knows who exactly is behind this", says one of the close relatives of the Yamadaevs' family who wishes to remain unnamed.
According to him, the leadership of Chechnya is behind persecution of the Yamadaevs' family, while "Kadyrov (Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov - "Caucasian Knot" correspondent's note) and his advisers Delimkhanov and Turlaev (Adam Delimkhanov and Shaa Turlaev - "Caucasian Knot" correspondent's note)" are linked with the murder of Ruslan and Sulim Yamadaevs and the attempt on Isa's life.
An acquaintance of the Yamadaevs who does not disclose his name for reasons of safety is not sure of the trial efficiency. "I am afraid that the matter may only be limited to "scapegoats", the killers themselves, while those who are behind all this will, as ever before, enjoy permissiveness and impunity. We know who ordered and organized all this, and it is already enough. Criminals may be punished not only under the law but also in conformance with our traditions and customs. Everyone knows this", says he.
