Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
After a series of publications how the center has organized the trip to Africa of three journalists which has ended with their death, the businessman has accepted resignation of the head of the center Konyakhin and has written: "Even partial responsibility is too much in such situation" Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Photo: Sophia Kembowski/DPA/TASS Is updated in 12:19centra there is no management of investigations (IMC) any more. Mikhail Khodorkovsky has closed the organization which has sent Orhan Jemal's group to the Central African Republic. After the last publications in media of correspondence of journalists with organizers of a business trip the former head of Yukos has adopted the resignation of the editor-in-chief of TsURa Andrey Konyakhin and has stopped support of the project. Konyakhin has confirmed the dismissal, having reported that he already as the independent correspondent will continue investigation of murder of group. Khodorkovsky's statement is published on the website "MBH of Media": "By results of studying of all materials available to me and discussion of results with skilled journalists-rassledovatelyami, I have come to a conclusion that selection of the person on the place (fixer) became an essential mistake by preparation of a trip. Responsibility for this mistake and in general for quality of training of a trip partially lies on the TsURa producer group. Even partial responsibility is too much in such situation. Therefore I take into consideration the resignation of the editor-in-chief of TsURa Andrey Konyakhin and I stop supporting, as the investor, the project Investigations Management Centre. At the moment my separate investigative team which doesn't have relations to control center conducts work in the Central African Republic in cooperation with colleagues from the Russian and western editions. I already told about intermediate results. We have reasons to believe that the group has fallen a victim of the planned operation. I announced an award in the CAR for information on crime. We plan to receive results until the end of the year". The editor-in-chief of TsURa Andrey Konyakhin was shorter: he has written in the Facebook that there is no project any more and that he can't write more a word about what isn't connected with murder of journalists in Africa: "It is not professional deformation. Just I don't want to think of anything the friend. Also I won't be, I won't find all involved yet. I bear all responsibility. Now as the independent correspondent I will look for these creatures which have killed group". Whether Khodorkovsky has correctly arrived, having closed IMC now? Business FM has asked about it the people who are engaged in journalistic investigations. Dmitry Muratov one of founders of Novaya Gazeta "Is the right of the owner. The owner has opened, the owner has closed. If this decision was made not by the owner, then I would tell that so far affairs aren't finished, the IMC including hasn't opened this business, and now as I understand, Konyakhin has promised to do it in a private order, I don't imagine how it is possible, then, it seems to me, closing of TsURa is precipitate. I in life have been forced to send many times people to the most unpleasant points of the planet, including to war. At us is специальн
