MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Lawyer Sergey Badamshin who accompanied former Yukos CEO Mikhail Khorkovsky’s father to questioning by Russia’s Investigative Committee has said Thursday that Boris Khodorkovsky does not plan to leave Russia in the nearest future.

"You had better ask him. As far as I know, he is not [going to leave Russia]. His home is here," the lawyer said.

Badamishin said that most questions of investigators were not about Mikhail Khodorkovsky. "Most questions concerned neither Boris Moiseevich [the father] nor Mikhail Borisovich [Khodorkovsky]," he noted refusing to provide further details.

The questioning was connected with the case of murder of Nefteyugansk Mayor Vladimir Petukhov in 1998. On June 30, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin said that the investigation of murder of Nefteyugansk Mayor Petukhov in 1998 will be resumed in view of newly discovered circumstances. IC said it received information that suggests that Mikhail Khodorkovsky could have organized the contract killing and committed other grave crimes.

"The questioning was held correctly. There were questions about investigation of Petukhov’s murder, but Boris Khodorkovsky used Article 51 of the Russian Constitution in most cases," the lawyer said explaining that the article grants a right against self-incrimination or incrimination of close relatives.

According to yesterday’s reports, investigator Burtov summoned Boris Khodorkovsky for questioning. Burtov earlier led the case against former head of Yukos security service Alexey Pichugin. It is expected that the questioning will be connected with investigation of murder of Nefteyugansk Mayor Vladimir Petukhov.
