Man convicted for Nemtsov’s murder gets roughed up in punitive confinement
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
Zaur Dadaev, convicted in the case of Boris Nemtsov's murder for 20 years of strict regime, is treated aggressively by employees of IK-3 of the Irkutsk Region, where he is serving his sentence, Rosbalt reports with reference to an informed source.
It is reported that Dadaev gets told off for any reason; recently he was once again placed in a SHIZO. According to the source of the agency, the reason was the movement of Dadaev from the mosque to a bath with two other convicts, including the so-called vyvodnoi (a person with whom convicts have the right to move around the colony territory).
While the vyvodnoi was checking whether there were places in the bathhouse, an inspector approached Dadaev and another prisoner and asked why they were outside without an escort. On July 13, the disciplinary commission issued another reprimand to Dadaev for that, and according to the source of the agency the explanations of the second prisoner and the vyvodnoi were not attached to the materials of the trial.
In addition, it is reported that recently a commission from Moscow which was interested in documents and personal records of Dadaev, came to IK-3. However, he refused to give them out, insisting that the members of the commission rewrite them. After that, he was again sent to the SHIZO, the source says, where he still is by now for almost a week. At the same time, the officers do not hide from the convict that after a few more remarks are raised the issue of transferring to the colony in the Primorsky region and tightening the conditions of detention will be brought up.
According to Rosbalt, the convict is hinted that if Dadaev agrees to be questioned on a polygraph, he can avoid trouble.
The news agency notes that the purpose of the compulsory voluntary procedure can be guessed from the situation with another convict of the Nemtsov case – Khamzat Bakhayev, serving time in Kirov-Chepetsk IK-11. Bahaev also initially refused to be interrogated using a polygraph, but after being placed in a punishment cell twice, he changed his decision.
Earlier, it was reported that the FSB and the ICR again returned to the investigation of Boris Nemtsov's murder, in which there are still many ambiguities. So, the investigation failed to establish where the gun, with which the politician was shot, was. Who had ordered the crime is also not completely clarified. In this regard, investigators allegedly seek additional testimony from convicted murderers, both voluntarily and under pressure. According to Rosbalt, in fact, prisoners are being investigated for questions answers to which were not received during the investigation.
The procedure on the polygraph was proposed to other convicts in the Nemtsov case, they too are now faced with constant reprimands and sent to the SHIZO. Anzor Gubashev received a year in strict conditions for refusing to a polygraph interrogation. According to sources of the agency, Shadid Gubashev was also subjected to pressure from the colony's employees. Allegedly, supervisors regularly impede the performance of their prayer, they do not allow to communicate with relatives, sending him to the punishment cell. At the same time, the colonies do not hide that the attitude towards the convicts can change if they agree to cooperate with the investigation.
It is reported that in this way the investigation plans to receive truthful answers to the main questions - where the gun, from which the politician was killed, is hidden, as well as the role of the alleged orderer of the murder Ruslan Mukhudinov, who was put on the wanted list, and Ruslan Geremeyev, the commander of the battalion Sever ('North').
Boris Nemtsov was shot dead in Moscow on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge near the Kremlin on February 27, 2015. In July 2017, Zaur Dadaev, the brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashev, Temirlan Eskerhanov and Khamzat Bakhayev were convicted for his murder. The court sentenced the murderer Zaur Dadaev to 20 years of prison, Anzor Gubashev to 19 years, his brother Shadid to 16 years, Temirlan Eskerhanov to 14 years, and Khamzat Bakhaev to 11 years.
Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Igor Mikhailichenko did not exclude the possibility that the entire premises would become a memorial, just as it happened to the school building in Beslan, which was seized by terrorists in 2004.
