MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Zhanna Nemtsova, daughter of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov who was killed six months ago, has filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights.
"Six months after the murder of one of the leaders of the Russian opposition, Boris Nemtsov, his lawyers and representatives Vadim Prokhorov and Olga Mikhailova dispatched a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg over the Russian authorities’ violations of Article 2 in combination with articles 10, 13, and 18 of the European Convention of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms — in other words, the right to life taken away with the aim to terminate the activity of an oppositional politician," Nemtsova’s lawyer, Vadim Prokhorov said.
The complaint argues that the authorities have been very ineffective in investigating the murder of Zhanna Nemtsova’s father.
"Although there is evidence indicating that officials from Chechnya might have been among those who put a contract on Nemtsov’s life the investigators have done nothing for establishing their identity. The plaintiff’s demands for questioning some senior Chechen officials were dismissed on far-fetched excuses," the complaint says.
The plaintiff believes that "since Nemtsov’s murder is obviously political and the authorities have displayed flagrant inactivity in trying to identify the murder’s masterminds and organizers the plaintiff is unable to count on a proper, thorough and comprehensive investigation or the effectiveness of the available means of legal protection."
Boris Nemtsov, a co-leader of the RPR-Parnas party, member of the Yaroslavl Region’s legislative assembly, was gunned down on February 27 on a bridge in the centre of Moscow. Five suspects have been arrested.
