MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has said he will definitely arrive for questioning in connection with the murder case of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov if the Investigative Committee demands so.
"I am also a suspect. If one listens to some shaitan ["evil spirits"] liberals they accuse me of killing Nemtsov. Some shout, others shout. They tell the Investigative Committee: 'Question Kadyrov.' Nonsense," Kadyrov said.
Moscow’s Basmanny court postponed until October 14 the consideration of complaint of Zhanna Nemtsova, the daughter of murdered politician, against the refusal of the Russian Investigative Committee to interrogate Kadyrov in connection with the case.
In comments to Nemtsova’s complaint, Kadyrov said: "She should search for someone in her entourage, the one who organized this murder rather than accuse me. If she wants to meet with me, let it be so, I invite her to my place, we will have tea, I will offer condolences to her that her father was killed," he said.
Kadyrov noted that over the past years, Nemtsov "decided nothing and bothered no one." "Those who ruled him decided themselves to get rid of him," the Chechen leader stressed.
The head of the North Caucasus republic said he did not believe that Zaur Dadayev, a former deputy commander of a Chechen battalion, could have been involved in the murder, adding that all the accusations were unfounded.
Co-chairman of the Parnas opposition party Boris Nemtsov was shot dead in downtown Moscow on February 27. Zaur Dadaev whom investigators consider the killer, Khamzat Bakhaev, Anzor Gubashev, Shadid Gubashev and Tamerlan Eskerkhanov have been arrested over Nemtsov’s murder.
