Assasination of Chechens in Turkey Stays Unsolved

Turkish media sources have reported that Russia did not share any information about the Russian suspect in the assassination of three Chechen asylum seekers in Turkey in late 2011.

In September 2011, three Chechen asylum seekers, Berg-Khazh Musaev (aka Emir Khamzat), Zaurbek Amriev and Rustam Altemirov, were assassinated in broad daylight in the district of Zeytinburnu, which is within Istanbul, Turkey. Some Turkish media sources reported that at least 8 Russian agents were involved in the assassination, and two of them were identified as Nadim Ayupov and Alexandr Zharkov (Garkov). However, since the assassination, there has been no official statement about the investigation or its results.

According to Turkish media reports, the Republic Prosecution Office in the Bakirkoy District sent an official request to Russian authorities. The Turkish prosecutor asked for detailed information about the identities of the suspects, and for them to be handed over if they were in Russia. But recently, an official response arrived from Russia which claims that these names do not belong to any of their citizens, there is no record of them and they have no knowledge of their citizenships.

Now, the fate of the investigation is unknown, but the victim’s attorney, Omer Yuzgul is asking for a trial with the collected evidence in the absence of the perpetrators.
