Deputy Off Interpol List

State Duma Deputy Adam Delimkhanov is no longer being pursued by Interpol as a suspect in the killing of former Chechen strongman Sulim Yamadayev, Rosbalt news agency reported Monday.

Yamadayev, 35, a Chechen commander, was shot dead outside his luxury home in Dubai in March 2009. Delimkhanov, a relative of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, had been accused by Dubai police of masterminding the murder and put on Interpol's wanted list. Delimkhanov and Kadyrov both denied being involved.

"Other persons suspected by the UAE [United Arab Emirates] in the murder of Yamadayev remain on the wanted list," an Interpol official told Rosbalt.

Delimkhanov's name does not appear in search results on Interpol's website for persons of Russian nationality wanted by the UAE.

Two men, including a former horse trainer for Kadyrov, were convicted by a Dubai court in April 2010 in connection with the killing. They were originally sentenced to 25 years, but were released after 27 months.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
