MOSCOW, May 31 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators have asked to change the measures of restrain for former police officer Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov, a defendant in the case over the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya, from custody to house arrest, due to serious chronic illnesses," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
