Nemtsov's murderer exiled beyond Arctic Circle

Nemtsov's murderer exiled beyond Arctic Circle
Shashid Gubashev

Conditions of Shashid Gubashev's detention have been maximally tightened.

Shashid Gubashev, who is convicted of the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, has been sent to one of the most severe Russian colonies, Rosbalt reports referring to its sources. 

According to the source, Gubashev has been sent to the correctional camp in Kharp village for numerous violations of the regime. However, the conditions of his detention in the correctional camp No. 8 located near the Arctic Circle had also been quite harsh. 

The colony in Kharp village, where there is permafrost, is usually intended for persons sentenced to life terms. For example, the Bitsa Park Maniac Alexander Pichushkin and Major Denis Evsyukov are serving their sentences there. In addition, the Federal Penitentiary Service sends ‘special’ prisoners to Kharp. In particular, ex-Head of MENATEP International Financial Organization Platon Lebedev spent part of the term there. 

The source assumes that the fact that Gubashev has been sent so far is indicative; investigators thus want to acquire new evidence from other defendants. It is as if they said “be more cooperative, otherwise you’ll go to the polar bears.”

However, the convicts in the case of Nemtsov’s murder are constantly being admonished and sent to punitive confinement. For example, Khamzat Bakhaev, who is serving his term in the correctional camp No. 11 in Kirovo-Chepetsk, agreed to undergo a lie-detector test after being sent to punitive confinement a couple of times. 

Former MIA officer Zaur Dadaev, who was the one shooting Nemtsov, had already collected so many penalties that he was transferred to “special conditions” – from IK-3 (Irkutsk, Irkutsk region) to the cell-type rooms in Angarsk. 

Investigators continue the investigation in respect of unidentified paymasters behind the murder of Boris Nemtsov. As the lawyer of the politician’s family, Vadim Prokhorov, told Rosbalt, the term of investigation of the case gets extended all the time, and the work of the ICR continues.
