GROZNY, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has dismissed as ''a blatant lie" the speculations that thousands of people were allegedly interrogated in connection with the loss of Kadyrov's mobile telephone.

Kadyrov said on one of his official websites that the telephone had been lost by a manager of a local folk dance group and that it was found on the same day.

Kadyrov, angered by the publicity given to the incident in the mass media which circulated unverified information by a local human rights organization, said that "dozens and even hundreds of media outlets had been calling Grozny to find out whether 'Kadyrov"s telephone was found', instead of asking whether the reports about the lost telephone were true."

Kadyrov was particularly annoyed by the allegations that thousands in Chechnya were interrogated in connection with the loss of the telephone. "It is a blatant lie no matter who has spread it," Kadyrov said.

Manager of a local folk dance group Kheda Tsakayeva did lose her telephone at an opening ceremony of an ethnographic museum in the Shali region, Kadyrov admitted. Heads of the Shali district Interior Department took prompt measures and returned the telephone to the owner. "Even if they questioned thousands, it means that they work properly, without leaving even an inconsiderable incident unnoticed," Kadyrov said on his website.
