Сommander of Sever battalion Delimkhanov came to court hearing over Nemtsov's case
However, the questioning is postponed for a week because of poor health.
The commander of the Sever (North) battalion Alibek Delimkhanov, under whom defendant Zaur Dadaev served, attended the court hearing over the Nemtsov's murder case.
However, 42-year-old Delimkhanov was not questioned today, the portal Mediazona reports. The Police Colonel told judge Yuri Zhitnikov about the bad state of health and fever. Without giving evidence, officers led away the commander of the Sever battalion in the room of witnesses. Delimkhanov was written an agenda to re-challenge in the court next week.
Note that Alibek Delimkhanov is a sibling of State Duma Deputy from the Edinaya Rossiya (United Russia) Adam Delimkhanov, the member of Chechnya Head Ramzan Kadyrov's inner circle.
As previously the CrimeRussia reported, the Police Colonel was summoned to the court in early December of 2016 together with his deputy Ruslan Geremeev, who eventually did not attend the hearing. Representatives of the Nemtsov's family convinced that Geremeev is the organizer of the murder. In addition, in November of 2016, at the next court session Zarina Isoeva, who worked as a cleaner in the apartment, where the accused lived, was questioned. She pointed out that the key to the company was Ruslan Geremeev, who currently does not have any procedural status. The investigation considers personal driver of Geremeev Ruslan Muhudinov as a customer of the murder. He is wanted.
Recall, the trial of the murder of Nemtsov began in October of the last year. In committing the crime five people were charged, Zaur Dadaev, the Sever battalion fighter, is considered as the performer by investigators. All the accused pleaded not guilty.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, said that the investigation into the murder of Boris Nemtsov "could drag on for years."
"But, at the same time, the President comes from the fact that every such offense <...> must sooner or later be revealed. And the performers, and those who could stand behind them, must be made accountable,"- Peskov said.
At Stanislav Grebenshchikov’s workplace and home, searches within the case of abuse of official powers were conducted. After the interrogation of the official, the question of his detention will be decided.
The detention and arrest of the Panamanian lawyers back in February was not associated with the publication of Panama archives. Jurgen Mossack and Ramon Fonseca are suspected of involvement in a corruption scandal in Brazil.
