"The charge or an expanded version of the indictment was brought against him /Bakhayev/ late on Friday. I have no right to reveal the details because I have pledged not to do that," the lawyer said.

On March 8, the Moscow Basmannyi court authorized the arrest of five suspects in the Nemtsov murder case. They included the Gubashev brothers - Anzor and Shadid; Zaur Dadayev; Khamzat Bakhayev and Tamerlan Eskerkhanov. They will stay in custody until April 28.
