MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. The Moscow Region Military Court will start hearing politician Boris Nemtsov’s murder case on July 25, court spokeswoman Irina Zhirnova told TASS on Tuesday.
"Preliminary hearings of the case are scheduled for July 25 and will be held behind closed doors," the spokeswoman said.
During the court’s session, the persons accused of Nemtsov’s murder will confirm their previously submitted applications for the examination of the case by a jury.
Nemtsov was gunned down in the center of Moscow on February 27, 2015. Five persons were arrested on March 8 last year on suspicion of murdering the politician: Zaur Dadayev, Anzor and Shadid Gubahev, Tamerlan Eskerkhanov and Khamzat Bakhayev.
Depending on their role and degree of their involvement, they are pressed with charges under part 2, article 105 ("Contract Murder Committed by an Organized Group’) and part 3, article 222 of Russia’s Criminal Code ("Illegal Acquisition, Transfer, Storage, Transportation and Bearing of Firearms and Ammunition by an Organized Group"). Article 105 envisages punishment up to life imprisonment.
The accused persons have denied their complicity in Nemtsov’s murder and insist on their case examination by a jury.
