MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. The Moscow Military District Court will question General Igor Krasnov, a deputy chairman of the Russian Investigative Committee, on October 19 as part of the case on the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, Vadim Prokhorov, one of the lawyers for the defense, told TASS on Tuesday.
"The questioning of Krasnov will take place tomorrow, on October 19," Prokhorov said in an interview with TASS.
The lawyer said that both the prosecution and the defense have a lot of question to ask the deputy chairman of the Investigative Committee.
Prokhorov said that he wanted to ask in particular about the progress in search of the crime organizers and investigation in regard to Ruslan Mukhudinov.
The court’s judge announced earlier in the day that it upheld a motion, filed by a lawyer of one of the suspects in the trial, to summon Krasnov for questioning.
Nemtsov, former deputy prime minister under then-President Boris Yeltsin, co-chairman of the Parnas party and lawmaker of the Yaroslavl regional legislature, was gunned down in downtown 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.
