MOSCOW, April 25./TASS/. Investigators intend to objectively and impartially look into the circumstances of a special operation in Chechnya on April 19, in which a certain Dzhambulat Dadayev was killed, said Vladimir Markin, spokesman for the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation.
He said the main investigative directorate for the North-Caucasian Federal District was looking into developments in connection with a special operation carried out on April 19 by police of the Stavropol territory and servicemen assigned to a provisional operative grouping of federal forces.
On April 19, policemen from the neighbouring Stavropol territory arrived in Chechnya to detain Dzhambulat Dadayev, who was suspected of having opened gunfire at another person in Stavropol.
According to the Russian Interior Ministry, Stavropol policemen followed strictly the effective procedural regulations and notified counterparts at the criminal investigations department in the Chechen republic, telling them about the purpose of their visit.
The suspect made a getaway in a car when the policemen were trying to detain him. He battered down a police car along the way.
After that the policemen made several shots at the suspect’s car and wounded him mortally.
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov was angered after the operation. The Interior Ministry said a warning made by the Chechen president to open fire for effect at law enforcers from other regions was inadmissible.
"The Russian Interior Ministry believes it inadmissible for the leader of the Chechen Republic to make statements on a possibility of opening fire for effect at law enforcers from other regions if they carry out special operations in Chechnya without authorization from the local agencies of law and order," the ministerial press service said in the Thursday statement.
Chief of Russia’s Investigations Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, revoked a resolution on instituting a criminal case in Chechnya against police officers from the Stavropol territory, the committee’s official spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Friday.
"The resolution on instituting a criminal case in connection with abuse of occupational powers by policemen during a special operation in the Chechen republic has been revoked by a decision of the Investigations Committee chairman," he said.
