MOSCOW, April 18 (Itar-Tass) – Russia's Investigations Committee has completed investigation of the case of five men charged with assassinating the journalist Anna Politkovskaya in the fall of 2006.
The committee's press service told Itar-Tass the investigators findings have been submitted to the Office of the Prosecutor General, which is now expected to endorse the indictment and to pass it on to the court.
On October 7, 2006 Politkovskaya was shot and killed in the lift of her block of flats, an unsolved assassination that continues to attract international attention. Politkovskaya made her reputation reporting from Chechnya. Her post-1999 articles about conditions in Chechnya were turned into several books; Russian readers’ main access to her investigations and publications was through Novaya Gazeta, a Russian newspaper known for its often-critical investigative coverage of Russian political and social affairs. From 2000 onwards, she received numerous international awards for her work. In 2004, she published a personal account: Putin's Russia. The 2007–2008 academic year at the College of Europe was named in her honour.
