"Kommersant": ICRF orders to find Ruslan Geremeev for questioning about Nemtsov's murder

The material by Nikolai Sergeev and Grigory Tumanov, published by the "Kommersant", asserts that operative agents are fulfilling the order of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) to find Ruslan Geremeev, a former officer of the battalion "Sever" (North) of the Interior Troops of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), for questioning as a witness in Boris Nemtsov murder case.

Opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed in Moscow on February 27. Five persons, including Zaur Dadaev, Anzor and Shagid Gubashev, Khamzat Bakhaev and Tamerlan Eskerkhanov, were detained on suspicion of involvement in the murder. They would not plead guilty.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Ruslan Geremeev went to Moscow six months ago together with Zaur Dadaev, who had also served in the battalion "Sever" in Chechnya, and who is now considered by investigators to be the direct killer of Nemtsov.

The "Kommersant" writes, referring to its sources, that immediately after detention Dadaev testified that he had received the order to kill Nemtsov through an intermediary, while Eskerkhanov told investigators that the man Dadaev was talking about could be associated with Ruslan Geremeev, a member of the influential Chechen clan.

The above material adds that investigators want to question Geremeev only as a witness, since later Dadaev and Eskerkhanov refused from their testimonies.
