Driver of journalists killed in CAR not linked to Gendarmerie: Russian Investigators

Moscow, Jan 11 (UNI) The driver of three Russian journalists killed in the Central African Republic (CAR) in July, 2018 was not linked to the Gendarmerie, Russian Investigative Committee Spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said on Friday.
"From the testimony of driver Bienvenu Douvokam, questioned with the participation of Russian investigators, it follows that he met with journalists on the day of their arrival in the evening at a cafe in Bangui. As he speaks English and has an SUV, journalists suggested he accompany them on trips across the country... The driver has no relation to the gendarmerie," Ms Petrenko said.
By initiating reports related to the murder of three Russian journalists in the Central African Republic (CAR), the Investigations Management Center (Tsur) is seeking to justify its own mistakes and lay the blame for the killing on those who are not involved, she added.
Russian journalist Orkhan Dzhemal, film director Alexander Rastorguev and operator Kyrill Radchenko were killed in the CAR in late July.
Tsur, the investigative media outlet of Russian opposition figure Mikhail Khodorkovsky, confirmed that it had sent the journalists to the CAR to work on a documentary about Russian military instructors operating in the country.
"It should be noted that by initiating publications on this topic in the media, the Investigations Management Center clearly aims to justify its own mistakes when preparing for this dangerous trip. [Tsur] prefers to offer its own versions and blame those who are not involved. But the obvious things can be denied only until all the facts of the incident are established," Sputnik quoted the Spokeswoman as saying.
