DRAMA IN DUBAI: Sulim Yamadayev Gunned Down in the Emirate

Russia Dubai Attack

Government officials in Dubai are royally pissed off following the gunning-down of Chechen renegade Sulim Yamadayev (above), who was shot in the parking lot of a Gulf-front luxury apartment building late last week.

The killing is being described as the first-ever politically-motivated assassination in Dubai’s history — and is yet another unwelcome dose of bad news for the super security-minded Emirate.

Yamadayev’s murder was — according Russian allies — orchestrated by close allies of Chechnya’s president and comes in the wake of his brother’s own murder in Moscow last year.

Pressure is coming from both Russia and Dubai to solve the crime — particularly as Dubai is in no mood to tolerate any additional negative media attention during its ongoing economic and touristic slowdown.
