Murder ordered by ‘authority’ from Azerbaijan solved in St. Petersburg
In St. Petersburg, the investigation of the criminal case against Adalet Amrakhov and Elnur Gafarov, accused of murder and attempt, was completed.
As the Rosbalt was told in the press service of the Investigative Committee’s Main Investigative Directorate for St. Petersburg, in the spring of 2003, criminal ‘authority’ Khokmurad Allahverdiyev from Azerbaijan ordered the murder of two of his compatriots engaged in trade in Yaroslavl. He addressed to Murad Mamedov and offered him about 500 thousand rubles for the execution. The latter got Amrakhov and Gafarov involved as performers. He gave the killers a homemade pistol with a silencer and briefed them about the traders.
On April 19, 2003, the performers went to a cafe on Kalinin Street 17 in Yaroslavl, where they shot the victims more than 10 times. One of the Azerbaijanis died on the spot, the other survived and was taken to the hospital. After that, the killers returned to St. Petersburg and received the reward.
The killer himself was killed in 2007. Mamedov is wanted. The case against the perpetrators is sent to the court.
The Legal Initiative researcher Saida Sirazhudinova at the All-Russian Civil Forum asked the representative of the mufti of Chechnya about the "honor killings" in Caucasus. And soon after that, she found herself under surveillance.
