Death of Yukos’ co-founder to be investigated

The Prosecutor General's Office is asking the authorities in Britain to carry out a full investigation into the death of Yuri Golubev, who died at his home in London last week.

Russian officials say there are reasons to believe the co-founder of the Yukos Oil Company died a violent death.

Golubev was one of the key witnesses in an investigation involving several Yukos officials.

It was reported in Britain that the 65-year-old may have suffered a heart attack.
