MOSCOW, April 16 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's top
investigators overruled a decision on Thursday to resume a
probe into the 2004 death of Chechen president Akhmad Kadyrov.
The Investigation Committee of the Southern Federal
District Prosecutor's Office announced earlier in the day it
had resumed a probe into the May 9 explosion, in which Kadyrov
died during a Victory Parade to mark WWII at a stadium in the
"The decision... was declared groundless and premature,
and was revoked," the Investigation Committee of the Russian
Prosecutor General's office said in a statement.
The investigation into the case was resumed at the request
of Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov. Kadyrov said last week
that his father was killed by former military commander Sulim
Yamadayev, who was assassinated in Dubai on March 28.
"I have 70% proof that he was involved in the killing of
my father, particularly as he tried twice to kill me, and
wanted to poison a lake at my [Gudermes] residence on the day
of my inauguration - I have witnesses," Kadyrov told reporters.
