THE HAGUE, January 25 (Itar-Tass) — Queen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Beatrix named the death of Russian citizen Alexander Dolmatov, who committed suicide, as a major tragedy, the Dutch television channel NOS reported on Friday.
Queen Beatrix noted that she is aware about a letter, which Lyudmila Doronina sent to her, asking to conduct an independent investigation in the details of the death of her son. Dolmatov’s friend passed the letter in the Dutch Embassy in Moscow. The Dutch head of state noted that the Dolmatov affair is a complicated case, but the Netherlands is investigating the details of his death.
A 35-year-old activist of the Other Russia movement was found dead at the Rotterdam deportation prison in the morning on January 17. He was brought in this prison from the centre for asylum-seekers a day before, because he was denied the status of political refugee.
The Dutch inspection for security and justice is investigating the details of the death of the Russian citizen, Dutch State Secretary of Security and Justice Fred Teeven said earlier. The Dutch Justice Ministry reported that Dolmatov wrote a suicide note to this mother about “tragic personal questions of his life.”
He was brought to the ward for people with psychological problems in the centre for asylum-seekers.
