MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. It is in the authority of a court and not the Kremlin to make a decision whether the murder of prominent Russian oppositionist Boris Nemtsov was solved, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
Nemtsov, former vice-premier under then-President Boris Yeltsin, and also co-chairman of the RPR-Parnas party and deputy of the Yaroslavl regional duma, was killed in downtown Moscow late on February 27, 2015.
"There is an investigation, prosecution, defense and a court," Peskov told journalists. "It is the court to approve whether it [the crime] was solved. This is not in the competence of the Kremlin."
Peskov’s statement comes after Alexander Bastrykin, the head of the Russian Investigative Committee, announced that the murder had been solved.
