MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Investigators have ascertained the motive behind the murder of Memorial rights center employee Natalia Estemirova, who was kidnapped in Chechnya and found slain in Ingushetia in April 2009.

Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said "the investigator believes the motive behind Estemirova's murder was revenge for her publications about recruiting of militants by /Alkhazur/ Bashayev and attack on a Moscow businessman's family, as well as defamation of government bodies in the Chechen republic."

Bashayev is on the Interpol wanted list, Markin reminded.

"A request for legal assistance was forwarded to the competent bodies of France in 2010, within the framework of the criminal case, to which no answer has been given yet," Markin said.
