MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin on Monday rejected as absurd media reports on the circumstances of detaining suspects in the murder case of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov.
"I’m not going to comment on any absurd reports in the media. Let me remind you that if you want to get credible information, then you should watch the website of the Investigative Committee of Russia," Markin said in reply to a request by TASS news agency to comment on a report by Kommersant business daily that "the investigation relied on the information of an agent who pointed to the suspects" in the Nemtsov murder case.
According to the paper, "both the main suspect in the case, Zaur Dadayev, and suspect Anzor Gubashev confessed to their part in the murder of Boris Nemtsov at a questioning held on March 7."
However, as the paper says, referring to its unnamed sources, "the investigators already knew all about this at the moment of questioning from an agent infiltrated into the suspects’ company."
Nemtsov, former vice-premier under then-President Boris Yeltsin, and co-chairman of the RPR-Parnas party and deputy of the Yaroslavl regional duma, was killed in downtown Moscow late on February 27.
Five suspects were arrested in the Nemtsov murder case, including Zaur Dadayev whom the investigators consider as the contract killer.
