Two Men Sentenced to Life Terms in Murder of Yamadayev
Dubai court has sentenced two men to life imprisonment for the murder of the Sulim Yamadayev, commander of the pro-Russian Chechen Special Battalion “Vostok” and hero of the Russian Federation, in 2009.
The men, Iranian Mehdi Taqi Dahuria (or Lorniya) (37 years old) and Tajik Makhsood Jan Asmatov (37 years old), were charged with aiding and abetting in the murder of Yamadayev who was shot dead with a Russian-made handgun on March 28th 2009 in the car park of a luxury seaside apartment block in Dubai where he had been living with his wife and children.
Judge Abdul Latif Abdul Jawad of the Dubai Court of First Instance on Monday sentenced the Iranian Dahuria and Tajik Asmatov to life sentence (a life sentence in the United Arab Emirates is limited to 25 years) for their roles in the murder of Sulim Yamadayev. At the end of jail term, they are to be deported back home.
Let’s remember that Iranian Dahuria (Lornia) was a horse groom to the national traitor Ramzan Kadirov and Ismatov is a businessman.
The Emirates police have put seven Russians suspected of involvement in the Yamadayev murder on the international wanted list. Among those wanted is Adam Delimkhanov, Russian State Duma Deputy and advisor of Ramzan Kadirov. According to Dubai police Adam Delimkhanov was masterminded the murder. Police said the gun used in the killing had been handed over to them by a Chechen delegation led by Kadirov that visited the United Arab Emirates in 2008.
