ICR Deputy Head has not appeared in court for questioning in Nemtsov's murder case
The Deputy Chairman of the Russian Investigative Committee, the Major-General Justice Krasnov did not appear at the Moscow District Military Court (MDMC), where he was to be questioned in the murder of Boris Nemtsov.
Interfax reported yesterday that the Major-General Igor Krasnov would appear in court as the first Head of the investigative group in the case of the Nemtsov's murder at the request of the lawyer Tsakaev.
The lawyer Tsakaev asked to call the General at the court in order to clarify the absence of information on the shells' inspection in the protocol.
According to the defense version, data of shells' inspection is fabricated for the purpose of belonging to their clients evidences’ forgery. Previously, investigators have reported that the marking of found shells coincided with the marking of ammunition found during searches in the Malkobek village in the house of accused of killing Zaur Dadaev’s mother.
At the moment, five defendants in the case: Zaur Dadaev, brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashevs, Temirlan Eskerhanov and Khamzat Bahaev are accused of committing crimes under items (g, h), part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Murder committed by an organized group, self-employed), and part 3 of Art. 222 of the Criminal Code (Trafficking in Arms, made by a group of persons). All the accused deny their guilt.
The Military Court will make a verdict, as Zaur Dadaev served in the battalion Sever in the MIA at the time of the murder.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
