MOSCOW, 6 March. /TASS/. Ukrainian Prosecutor-General’s Office, Viktor Shokin, has issued orders to ensure protection of Anna Duritskaya, the key witness in the murder of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov.
The PGO’s press-service said Duritskaya had turned to law enforcement agencies for protection saying she was receiving threats from unidentified persons to the address of her parents.
"On instructions from the prosecutor’s office of the Kiev Region the investigative department of the Belaya Tserkov city police department launched an investigation under part one of article 15 and part one of article 115 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code," the PGO said in a statement.
The pre-trial investigation is under the personal control of the Ukrainian prosecutor-general’s office.
A co-chairman of the RPR-Parnas party, member of the Yaroslavl regional legislature, Boris Nemtsov was gunned down minutes before the midnight of Friday, February 27. The investigators are pursuing several lines of inquiry, including a contract killing. Netmsov was buried at a Moscow cemetery on March 3.
