MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. Moscow City’s Basmanny district court is expected to hold a review of the rulings to arrest 3 suspects in the case over the assassination of the oppositionist politician Boris Nemtsov next Monday, April 6, the court’s press secretary Anna Fadeyeva told TASS.
"A court session to review the petition to arrest Shadid Gubashev, Tamelan Eskerkhanov, and Khamzat Bakhayev has been scheduled for 12:00 hours on April 6," she said.
Moscow City Court on Wednesday heard defenders’ complaints over the March 8 ruling to sanction the arrest of Zaur Dadayev, Anzor and Shadid Gubashev, Khamzat Bakhayev, and Tamerlan Eskerkhanov. The decision to arrest Shadid Gubashev, Bakhayev and Eskerkhanov was taken at a single session, not separately.
The city court judge said on Wednesday this way of appointing a pretrial measure encroached on the rights of parties to the judiciary proceedings.
The city court annulled the ruling on Bakhayev, Eskerkhanov and Shadid Gubashev, who will stay in custody until a new consideration of the investigators’ query by the district court.
Along with it, the court reaffirmed the legitimacy of Zaur Dadayev and Anzor Gubashev’s arrest.
Boris Nemtsov, a leader of Russia’s off-parliament opposition who occupied a variety of high-rank posts in the 1990’s during the presidency of Boris Yeltsin, was shot dead in downtown Moscow on February 27. Investigators believe that Dadayev was Nemtsov’s assassin while other arrested were his accomplices.
All the suspects have been charged with offenses under the clauses of Article 105 of Russia’s Criminal Code (an assassination committed by a group upon complicity or on contract compounded with felony, extortions or banditry) and also Article 222 (illegal purchasing, storage, transfer, or handling of weaponry and munitions upon conspiracy).
If proven by the court, charges under these clauses may bring prison terms of eight to twenty years or life sentences.
