MOSCOW, January 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will do its best to find true reasons for the death of Alexander Dolmatov, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference devoted to the Russian diplomatic results in 2012 on Wednesday.
“We are keeping in close contact with the Dutch authorities for the soonest bringing of the body of Dolmatov back to the homeland. This procedure will take 1.5 weeks,” Lavrov said.
The minister noted that the Russian Foreign Ministry will continue to seek for an unbiased and detailed investigation in the tragic incident with the activist of the Other Russia movement.
Alexander Dolmatov was found dead at a centre for asylum-seekers in the city Rotterdam in the morning on January 17. Dolmatov was brought to the centre on January 16, after he was denied the status of political refugee. At this centre Dolmatov was to wait for deportation or further decisions over his request, because, under the Dutch legislation, the denial of the immigration authorities can be appealed.
