Pay attention to this line in the article: “Two suspects are currently on trial in the murder case – Tajik national Makhsudzhon Ismatov and Iranian Mahdi Lorniya.”
The Iranian in question appears in the following thread of a conversation I had with Nicolas Iguacel, who handles Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov’s horses as an assistant to trainer Herman Brown. Here’s an edited (not for grammar) excerpt:
I thought that Mr. Kadyrov would have a difficult time getting licensed in Dubai this year because Lt. Gen. Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, chief of police in Dubai, has placed Mr. Kadyrov’s right-hand mand, Adam Delimkhanov, on interpol as the mastermind behind the assassination of Sulim Yamadayev in Dubai last World Cup day.
Lt. Gen. Tamim also has stated that one of the first arrests was an Iranian who was a groom with the Kadyrov horses in Dubai last winter.
Can you comment?
We are in Dubai and Meydan is going fast but still a lot to do. The iranian guy that was arrested three days after the world cup wasn t a groom. He was working for an embassy here in dubai and was our interpreter cos Ramzan doesnt speak in english. The guy was at the stables the morning of the murder and at the races from the first race until the last race cos they had Bankable running in the duty free and i was with him so i dont think if you murder someone you will be so cool at the races and then he came the following two days to the stables so i think he was in the wrong place at the right time cos you don t want to go to jail in dubai, like all the other suspects the best it would be to flight out of the country but im not a detective, it s just my opinion.
Do you expect Mr. Kadyrov to visit Dubai this winter?
When you said the Iranian was with you on World Cup day, was Mr. Kadyrov also present, and was Mr. Delimkhanov at the races, too?
The horses will run in Dubai and only from the end of January when the carnival starts. The only one at the races was the Iranian guy and mr kadyrov was here in dubai only once.
