MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Moscow’s Presnensky court has declined oppositionist Alexey Navalny’s request to attend Russian politician Boris Nemtsov’s funeral, a TASS correspondent reported on Monday.
Navalny did not attend the court session, as it is not required by law.
Alexey Navalny — a prominent opposition figure being kept under house arrest as a result of administrative sanctions, has appealed to the Moscow Presnya District court, asking to suspend the house arrest for one day to attend Nemtsov's funeral.
Russian opposition and state figure Boris Nemtsov was shot dead in downtown Moscow overnight to February 28 with four shots from a handgun from a passing car.
According to preliminary data, an unknown assailant made a few shots at Nemtsov when the latter was walking along the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case into the killing under articles 105 (murder) and 222 (illegal arms turnover) of the Russian Criminal Code.
