MOSCOW, March 16 /TASS/. Prosecutors have brought charges against Khamzat Bakhayev, the fifth suspect in the murder case of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov, Bakhayev’s lawyer Sofia Rubasskaya told TASS on Monday.
"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.

The suspects may face from 8 to 20 years in prison or even sentenced for life if convicted.
