Prosecutor General

the Russian Federation

Chaika Y.

Dear Yuri Yakovlevich!

The Russian Muftis Council expresses its respect and refers to the following.

10 of April 2012 about 1:30 am in the courtyard of on the street. 2nd Brest, 43, a prominent Moscow Islamic social activist Metin Mehtiyev was killed, and this murder should be considered as no other than as a ritual murder - he was beaten and then his throat was cut.

Metin Mehtiyev was a highly educated, crystal honest young man, well-known Muslim public figure, he helped the integration of Caucasians in Moscow society, working with young people, students, collaborated with the Religious Board of Muslims of European part of Russia, the Caucasus Center for Human Rights, the Russian Congress of Peoples of the Caucasus, the Islamic cultural center in Russia , the NGO "Solidarity" and many other national-cultural, youth, human rights, religious and charitable organizations, enjoying well-deserved respect in the youth community. I personally knew Metin as an intelligent, kind, hardworking and decent family man, who left two months' old son and elderly mother, whose sole breadwinner, he was.

Due to the fact that investigators may choose as the basic version as grounds for this murder - the robbery and will not take into account the likely involvement of national extremists, we ask you to take the investigation under your personal control and to ensure its impartiality and comprehensiveness.

With the kind prayers and best wishes, 

Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin

Chairman of the Russian Muftis Council,
