ECHR: Russia to pay 6.000 euros to Nemtsov's murder case defendant
Temirlan Eskershanov

The court did not satisfy the complaints of the brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashev.⁠

The European Court of Human Rights has ordered Russia to pay 6 thousand euros of compensation to Temirlan Eskerhanov, one of the convicts in the case of the murder of Boris Nemtsov. The text of the decision is posted on the court's website.

The judges unanimously pointed out a violation of Article 3 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights on the prohibition of torture in connection with the conditions of detention in the detention center and transportation to the court, as well as the violation of Article 5 §4 (Right to a Speedy Trial).

Complaints of the brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashev, also convicted in the case of the murder of Nemtsov, the court found unacceptable because of getting data on the progress of negotiations on an amicable agreement in the media: in January, lawyer Musa Hadisov said that the ECHR awarded Gubashev for 6.5 thousand euros each, but later he had to admit the information was incorrect. The court considered the actions of the Gubashovs to be unacceptable, since the documents submitted to it last December contained strictly confidential information.

Accused of the case of the murder of Boris Nemtsov Anzor Gubashev the court sentenced to 19 years in a strict-regime colony, Shadid Gubashev - to 16 years, Temirlan Eskerkhanov - to 14 years. All of them were also fined 100 thousand rubles ($1700).
