Main defendant in oppositionist Nemtsov's murder case makes public appearance
There are no investigative actions against Geremeev. The former commander of the battalion Sever (North) is a witness in the case.
One of the main defendants in the case of Boris Nemtsov’s murder, former commander of the Sever battalion Ruslan Geremeev, remains in Chechnya, where he leads a secret life, but periodically visits weddings and anniversaries of his acquaintances. Rosbalt reports this with reference to a source familiar with the situation. There are almost no investigative actions in his relation. At present, Geremeev is a witness in the Nemtsov’s case. Local police came to his house to serve the summons with a call for interrogation several times, but he was not there.
According to a source of the edition in law enforcement agencies, if Geremeev is detained, his status in the case will "immediately change." However, the local police are not taking any action.
Another main figurant of the Nemtsov’s case, driver of Geremeev Ruslan Mukhutdinov disappeared. It is reported that he was not seen in Chechnya. He did not appear in the UAE, which representatives of the Republic prefer visiting. Mukhutdinov was put on the Interpol wanted list. He is considered the customer of the politician’s murder, but his intentions were not defined during the investigation.
Meanwhile, the direct executor of the Nemtsov’s murder, former soldier of the Sever battalion Zaur Dadaev, was sent to the colony for former law enforcement officers, Rosbalt’s sources reported. During the preliminary investigation and the court, Dadaev was kept in the Lefortovo pre-trial detention center. After the sentence’s enuring, he was transferred to SIZO No. 4 (Medvedkovo). From there, on December 8, Dadaev was sent to one of the colonies. The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia does not disclose the exact place of his incarceration, but presumably it could be one of the colonies of Mordovia. He was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment.
Other accomplices in the murder of Nemtsov - Anzor and Shadid Gubashevs, Temirlan Eskershanov and Khamzat Bakhaev - remain in the capital's pre-trial detention center. They will be sent to the colony later. The court appointed them from 11 to 19 years of imprisonment.
