Kadyrov thanks jury for acquitting “Chechen killer” Khasaev
The defendant was accused of murdering mafia lord Ashot Arutyunyan.
Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov thanked the jury of the Sverdlovsk Regional Court for acquitting Movsur Khasayev, who was accused of murdering the criminal boss Ashot Arutyunyan. The judge will deliver the verdict on May 30.
“I am sincerely grateful to Yevgeny Vladimirovich (Kuyvashev, Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region), Adam Sultanovich (Delimkhanov, Kadyrov's Counselor and State Duma Deputy), the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights, the jury of the Sverdlovsk Court and everyone who was guided by the law and conscience, touching upon the fate of Movsur Khasayev!” Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel.
The lawyers indicated to the jury that the killer had fled the crime scene, and that Khasayev’s one leg is six centimeters shorter than the other. At the time of the crime, he himself was allegedly in the Chechen regional center of Vedeno at a relative’s funeral. Arutyunyan was killed on May 28, 2011 in Yekaterinburg.
