Leader of "Dagestan Mothers": killed Zakaryaev pursued Butdaev
Gyulnara Rustamova, leader of the public organization "Dagestan Mothers for Human Rights" and sister of Vadim Butdaev, who is accused of murdering journalist Telman Alishaev and UBOP Major Arsen Zakaryaev, has stated that the latter had been long prosecuted her family.
"In 2005, he made a search of our house, during which a grenade was planted," she asserts. However, Ms Rustamova excludes any possible participation of her brother in journalist's murder.
The "Kommersant" writes that Gyulnara Rustamova reported that the employees of law enforcement bodies who interrogated her had announced that the murderer, who had shot Zakaryaev dead, allegedly told the taxi driver: "Tell them that it was done by Vadim."
We remind you that today the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told in law enforcement bodies of Dagestan that they have information about participation of Vadim Butdaev in murdering UBOP Major Arsen Zakaryaev and journalist Telman Alishaev in Makhachkala.
According to a source from law enforcement bodies, in both cases eyewitnesses have recognized Butdaev by his photo.
