MOSCOW, January 19, 17:10 /ITAR-TASS/. About 400 people, including journalists and bloggers, have gathered in central Moscow to commemorate the murdered lawyer, Stanislav Markelov, and the Novaya Gazeta journalist, Anastasiya Baburova, a Moscow interior source said on Sunday.
“About 400 people, including journalists and bloggers, are staging an action in central Moscow to pay tribute to Markelov and Baburova,” the source went on to say.
The action’s organizer is Lev Pomonarev.
Stanislav Markelov, the lawyer of the inter-republican College of Advocates, and part-time correspondent of the Novaya Gazeta daily Anastasiya Baburova were killed on Moscow’s Prechistenka Street on January 19, 2009.
On 2011, the Moscow City Court passed a verdict on Nikita Tikhonov and Yevgeniya Khasis who were accused of killing Markelov and Baburova. Khasis was sentenced to 18 years in prison. The judges based their decision on a verdict passed by the jury.
Tikhonov and Khasis and a group of unidentified persons united in a group for murdering Markelov whom they disliked for defending the rights of victims of ethnically motivated crimes, the text of the sentence said.
