Russia’s Investigative Committee said that the body of Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny has been sent for a “chemical examination,” reports Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh:

The investigators told the lawyers and Alexey’s mother that they would not give them the body. The body will be under some sort of “chemical examination” for another 14 days.

Earlier on Monday, Alexey Navalny’s mother and his lawyers were turned away from the morgue in Salekhard, where his body was reportedly taken after he died in prison, said Yarmysh. Since Navalny’s death on February 16, his family and lawyers have been denied access to his body.
