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.

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.
